‘Skin’ Re-issued on Digital May 28


Comes to Digital HD on May 28th


Based on an incredible true story, SKIN follows Sandra Laing (Oscar nominee Sophie Okonedo, Hotel Rwanda,the new Hellboy), a distinctly mixed-race South African woman born to white parents (Sam Neill and Alice Krige) during the apartheid era. Despite her upbringing as a white girl, Sandra is eventually classified as “colored” by the government and stripped of the rights with which the rest of her family is privileged. And when she begins a love affair with a local vegetable dealer, Sandra finds herself cut off from her past and living the hard life of a truly black woman in a society that seeks to ostracize her. Harrowing, moving and ultimately inspiring, SKIN is a story of family, forgiveness and the triumph of the human spirit. Roger Ebert called it “one of the best films of the year [2009],” while Entertainment Weekly‘s Clark Collis praised it as “a tragic, enraging and uplifting tale.”
