Men are so easy. Just ask Scarlett Johansson’s out-of-this-world character in Jonathan Glazer’s “Under the Skin”, based on the book by Michael Faber. Frankly, advance word of the film’s rather episodic, wandering ways just means the movie is a too-faithful adaptation of the Faber book, which was pretty episodic and wandering. Or at least, it was for the first 60-70 or so pages I managed to get through.
Here’s an extended trailer for “Under The Skin”, in which ScarJo plays an alien seductress who prowls the streets, alleyways, and highways of Scotland looking for willing victims. (And yes, they are apparently very willing. Suckers!) She then, we presume, has her way with them.
Or does something to them that involves them never being seen again. Frankly, I’m not sure. Hopefully they all went with a smile.
“Under the Skin” also stars Krystof Hádek, Paul Brannigan, Robert J. Goodwin, Scott Dymond, Jessica Mance, Michael Moreland and Jeremy McWilliams.
Picking up victims sometime next year.
