Cape Town today. Home to South Africa’s toughest maximum Security prison – Pollsmoor. When Farakahn (Brendon Daniels) a general in the Numbers Gang, is released after 13 years, he wants a quiet life and a ‘river of peace’. But he finds himself in a world more violent than when he left it. Now ruthless street gangs – Americans, Nice Times, Mongrels, Dixie Boys – control the ghetto streets, crack and guns are sold openly, and young boys are disappearing, victims of a serial killer. In this turbulent world, Farakahn seeks to make contact with his 13-year-old son – who he’s never known.
Jonathan Glazer’s (Sexy Beast, Birth) ‘Under The Skin’ is to be released in the UK on March 14th, 2014. In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Glazer and cowriter Walter Campbell adapt Michael Faber’s acclaimed novel of the same name.
‘Under The Skin’ has already been critically-acclaimed at the Venice, Toronto and London film festivals. The score for the movie, which has also received lots of praise, is by Mica Levi. Expect a US release date shortly. Source: Entertainment Focus via The Playlist.
