"In My Country"

John "Deliverance" Boorman directs Juliet "The English Patient" Binoche and Samuel L. "Every Other Movie Made" Jackson in a story of the New South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Despite the big names involved, it's a dud.

Jackson is grating as an obnoxious Washington Post reporter and Binoche is atrocious as a sensitive Afrikaaner poetess weeping over the sins of her people -- one of the worst performances I've seen in a long time. When they start an affair, several black ladies got up and walked out of the screening. They didn't miss much.
