Dr. Robert Ledgard (Antonio Banderas) is a driven plastic surgeon haunted by personal tragedies. After many years of trial and error, he finally perfects a new skin – a shield which could have prevented the death of his wife in an accident years earlier. His latest “guinea pig” is a mysterious captive whose true identity masks a shocking mystery. THE SKIN I LIVE IN is a masterful tale of secrets, obsession and revenge from Academy Award® winning writer/director Pedro Almodovar.

Bizarre Almodovar drama is far too intense for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this boundary-pushing drama/thriller from celebrated Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar (and starring Antonio Banderas) is arguably his most perverse, controversial film to date, even more so than 2004's Bad Education. It contains kidnapping, graphic rape, nudity, sex, burn victims, murder, blood, pill-popping, and a forced sex-change operation, as well as supernatural elements and themes borrowed from the Frankenstein story. The English subtitles contain a few strong words, including "f--k" and "c--t."
