Review
Eighteen year old Brian Lackey is missing something, five hours to be precise, five hours from his childhood that he cannot account for and that he has become convinced is the work of aliens. Moving to New York Brian meets a young hustler, depressingly wise beyond his years and though seemingly at complete odds with each other the two form a bond. Together the young lads recognise the need to acknowledge what has happened to them and in each other see the opportunity to lay their demons to rest. Mysterious Skin is a beautifully performed and hypnotic drama, sensitive, thoughtful and not without humour it deals with a subject that few films would dare to touch.
