Well written , well acted makes you think are people made to believe they are racists or are they believing in all they know?
Good flick. Interesting how former British children actors try to rebrand themselves as badass by playing white supremacists. First they had Harry Potter in Imperium and now Billy Elliot in this.
idk; this movie is kind of hard to watch, but i think that's part of the point. the message is good, the journey to get there is hard.
Awesome movie, subtle for a biography, great acting, biographically accurate. Worth a watch
Bryon Widner is a white supremacist, fully embedded in the violence and hatred of the gang he runs with until the day he meets someone who opens his eyes to another life away from the hate. After making the decision to leave he realises that leaving this life behind is going to be a lot harder than he realised as he begins to udnerstand, he has not only endangered his own life but everyone around him too.
I thought Skin was a brilliant story of redemption and there is a superb transformative performance from Jamie Bell at it's core. This is certainly the best performance of the lead actor's career, he completely owned this role and is a massive step away from anything else I have seen him in. The supporting cast were also spot on too, Bill Camp and Vera Farmiga as Bryon's wannabe parental figures who hold so much control over him and Danielle MacDonald and Mike Colter, playing the ones who offer him a way out.
Powerfully acted. Felt raw and real.
*yawn* Oof, that was Rotten.
Movie starts to drag in the 3rd act. Jamie Bell's performance is definitely the highlight, though everyone else is very good too. Not my favorite skinhead movie but a solid one nonetheless.
Great message. Positive. Worth watching.
This short film is a haunting take on racism and a surprisingly excellent conversation piece - it got a room of more than a dozen people talking about its finer points.
