In Burn Country, a mystery develops in a small northern California town where an Afghan journalist gets a job working for a newspaper and becomes dangerously embroiled in a murder investigation. Oscar winner Melissa Leo, in another of her great world-weary roles, stars as a local cop and James Franco appears as a sketchy, long-haired screwup with a possible motive for killing the victim.
