| Realistic and disturbing
Under the Skin is the story of Iris, a young woman who goes off the rail into drink and promiscuity following her mother's death. What follows is a very unpleasant viewing experience, as this character destroys every solid relationship she has around her as a result of her self destructive behaviour. The film is very well acted by all involved, and the director should be commended for maintaining a state of realism without being (to) graphic. One scene in particular did genuinely shock me. Overall, if you're in the mood for a depressing ride watching someone disintegrate into sex and alcoholism, well acted, scripted and directed then it will be worth a watch, but ultimately it may prove a bit too much.
