Femme Filmmakers Festival review: Under the Skin

Reading time: < 1 minute
Carine Adler’s 1997 drama, Under the Skin, stars Samantha Morton in her debut role as Iris Kelly. A young, curious woman, who dives headfirst into a downward spiral of grief, promiscuity, and loneliness.
After the death of their mother, Iris, and her sister Rose, react in dramatically different ways. While Rose (the suspected favourite) is openly distraught and emotional, Iris represses all feelings, and instead ventures on a one-woman oblivion of casual sex with strangers.
