      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Skin could stand to go a bit deeper below its surface, but a worthy story and a committed performance from Jamie Bell make this timely drama well worth a watch.

      David H Very well written, acted, and informative Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/05/19 Full Review Julia S I love the actors Jamie Bell and Daniell Mcdonald. Even though Mcdonald only has a supporting role here, the film is great. It is exciting and engaging and the message is always relevant and important. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Paul S Totally worth it ! Great acting on all fronts and a very provoking story. Tbh I found his reasoning to such a 180 change a bit ‘weak' for someone who had such strong convictions - but apparently it's what happened in real life. Overall really liked it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/24 Full Review Mario Z Bad character development, characters flip flopping constantly. Pretentious movie trying to pass as compelling but falls flat even if based on a true story. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/24/23 Full Review Simon S Although hard to bear, this thrilling drama scores with an incredible performance of Jamie Bell and the reduced but effective score by Dan Romer. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/01/23 Full Review gareth d An intimate look at violence and hate and how it stems from poverty and absent parents, held together well by Jamie Bell.

      Simran Hans Observer (UK) Bell is magnetic in the role, and there's real chemistry between him and Macdonald, but the film's formal glossiness and frequent overhead shots create distance between the viewer and the hate crimes on display. Rated: 3/5 Sep 29, 2019 Full Review Charlotte O'Sullivan London Evening Standard This film's saved by the Bell. But only just. Rated: 3/5 Sep 28, 2019 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) The actor does his best with a threadbare character. Rated: 2/5 Sep 28, 2019 Full Review Carlos Losilla Sensacine Skin is more interesting when it chooses to film violence frankly, to face the complexity of life without naive or well-intentioned apriorism. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 7, 2020 Full Review Yasser Medina Cinefilia It has a powerful start, but in the second half it loses strength with his text on tolerance, inclusivity and redemption. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Aug 3, 2020 Full Review Carlos Bonfil La Jornada In an eloquent way, the Israeli director exposes the contradictions behind a racial prejudice.
