View Trailer

Jamie Bell is outstanding in this expansion of Guy Nattiv’s 2019 Oscar-winning short inspired by the true story of reformed neo-Nazi Byron Widner. 

A universe away from his debut as Billy Elliot, Jamie Bell delivers a riveting, eye-opening performance as Widner, previously the subject of Bill Brummel’s documentary Erasing Hate. Spanning Widner’s descent into racist violence, his subsequent escape and the protracted and painful tattoo removal he endured to erase the hate etched onto his face, Nattiv’s film eloquently traces an agonising path to redemption – a spark set in motion when Widner meets single mother Julie. Rising Australian star Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cake$, MIFF 2017) gives an impeccable, heart-rending turn in this role, almost stealing the spotlight from Bell.

As a resurgent white supremacist movement is increasingly emboldened by leaders across the world, Skin offers a timely antidote, reminding us that people can change. With both Bell and Macdonald ably supported by a stellar ensemble that includes Vera Farmiga, Bill Camp (Wildlife, MIFF 2018), Mike Colter, Mary Stuart Masterson and Daniel Henshall (Acute Misfortune, MIFF 2018), this powerful drama will leave you with hope.

“The performances across the board are outstanding, with Bell first among equals.” – The Hollywood Reporter
