Impressive, highly involving… an attention-grabbing performance by Samantha Morton – Variety.

UNDER THE SKIN launched the careers of two major British talents: Carine Adler and Academy Award nominee Samantha Morton. An acute psychological portrait of a young woman, Iris Kelly (Samantha Morton), experiencing a breakdown followed by a partial reintegration after the death of her mother from cancer... Iris believes her elder sister, Rose, was her mother’s favourite, and this has exacerbated her distress and her revolt against Rose’s values.

WINNER: Seven awards including Best Director and Best Actress at BIFAs
