It's a hot day in the desert sun for Sienna Miller.

So what better way to cool off then to go bathing in her bra in French film director Rachid Bouchareb's new road movie, Just Like a Woman.

In a clip of the film that's just hit the web, courtesy of, the 31-year-old actress stars as an American housewife named Marilyn who joins a North African woman (Golshifteh Farahani) on a trek from Chicago to Sante Fe to participate in a bellydancing competition.

Along the way, the two not only make a pit stop at a swimming hole out west, but they also forge a deep bond and friendship sharing the unhappiness of their respective marriages, paving the way for some major introspection.

In Miller's case, her character is fleeing a husband who had an affair, a horrible betrayal that unfortunately the thesp can relate to given the 2005 cheating scandal that engulfed her when her own real-life fiancé, actor Jude Law, cheated on her with his kids' nanny.

Per The Wrap, Just Like a Woman, a coproduction between Cohem Media Group in the U.S. and companies in France and the United Kingdom, is the first in a trilogy of English-language films aimed at exploring the changing relationship between Americans and the Arab world.

The drama has already unspooled in Europe and will be released Stateside this Friday as well as simultaneously on VOD and iTunes.

Up next for Miller meanwhile is a role in the ensemble A Case of You opposite Peter Dinklage, Evan Rachel Wood, Vince Vaughn and Justin Long. The comedy romance was written by Long and follows a young writer who exaggerates his online profile only to have the girl he was trying to impress fall for him, forcing him to keep up the elaborate act.

After that, she'll team up with Chris O'Dowd and Cillian Murphy for Hippie Hippie Shake, which just wrapped filming and chronicles London counterculturalist Richard Neville's misadventures at the end of the '60s.
