The Skin I Live In
Directed by Pedro Almodóvar • 2011 • Spain
Starring Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya
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 that 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 Oscar-winning writer/director Pedro Almodóvar.
