Skin leaves a lasting impression as it peels off a shameful past.

The performances across the board are outstanding, with Bell first among equals...

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a narrow treatment of a now pressingly relevant subject, but one that still rewards as a powerful, well-acted tale of personal redemption.

[The others] need Bell to give the tour de force performance he does to go into the darkness with him. A just world would place him in the awards conversation.

Sep 21, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The real scene-stealer in this violent, well-paced movie is Vera Farmiga as "Mom," the matriarch of the racist-skinhead family, who wields soft-power maternal love and affection for her "lost boys" almost diabolically.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

A powerful, if sensationalist, drama with a fierce central performance from Jamie Bell.
