"Sublime. A genuine revelation and one of the most original movies in years. Under The Skin finds Glazer graduating to the level of mastery. We may finally have an heir to Kubrick.“Calum Marsh, LA Weekly

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 voluptuous 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.
