Under the Skin

July 14, 2014

United Kingdom | 2013 | 108 Minutes | Jonathan Glazer

Encore screening! Visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) returns with a stunning masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial — or something in between. 

A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the cities and highways of Scotland in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair where they are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber ("The Crimson Petal and the White").

"One of the many startling things about Under the Skin is how complicated and distressing a story can be told with almost no dialogue and absolutely no explanation or back story." - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com

"The movie's eerie, climactic image challenges our conventional notions of human identity and leaves us reflecting on the possibility that every being in the universe is an alien in disguise." - Stephen Holden, New York Times
