Skin" is a good movie about fractured race relations, a problem plaging the US for hundreds of years. It is a small story about huge themes and feeling gritty, raw and unseemly. Bell rightfully dominates and carries the picture and Vera Farmiga delivers the best performance as Babs' adoptive mom Shareen. The kind of ation is such to achieve a level of reality to the unfolding drama. Bryon is the focal point of the feature, and the script follows his daily experience in the Vinlanders Social Club, where Hammer rules through practiced hate speech and intimidation, creating a community of skinheads willing to murder those they perceive as American invaders. The story details at first Bryon's horrifying experience in these hatred dominated ambiances, then it shows gradually the redemption process. Overall effective scenese and everything seeming genuinly true.
