Under the Skin

A genuine revelation. We may have an heir to Kubrick. ” LA Weekly

TPH x Four Pillars: WILD WINTER NIGHTS. Would you risk being abducted? By an alien? That looks exactly like Scarlett Johansson!?
Now THAT is a question!

From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial–or something in between.

A woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. 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), Under The Skin examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.
