UNDER THE SKIN, starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Jonathan Glazer, will open across the UK on 14 March 2014 through STUDIOCANAL, following its Scottish premiere as the Closing Gala at the Glasgow Film Festival on 2 March.
Glazer’s third film following Sexy Beast and Birth, UNDER THE SKIN is the story of an alien in human form. Part road movie, part science fiction, part real, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes.
Critically acclaimed at the Venice, Toronto and London film festivals, with special praise going to Mica Levi’s score, UNDER THE SKIN was shot in London and extensively on location in Scotland.
Glazer and Walter Campbell wrote the screenplay. Producers are James Wilson (JW Films) and Nick Wechsler (Nick Wechsler Productions). The film is based on a novel by Michel Faber. UNDER THE SKIN is a Film4 and BFI presentation, in association with Silver Reel, Creative Scotland and FilmNation Entertainment.
