An accident in the desert leaves deep personal wounds that last a generation and has significant consequences for a swath of seemingly unconnected people.  In particular, two women, separated by time, struggle with overwhelming guilt and a desire to live life on their own terms, despite the turmoil it causes in their relationships.  In this richly textured film starring Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger, intersecting storylines play an integral part of our ultimate understanding of what really happened in the desert that day.  Directed by the writer of Babel and 21 Grams, this year’s Centerpiece is one not to miss.
