When Johansson isn’t kicking asses as the Black Widow, or having awkward operating system sex in Her, she’s donning the role of interplanetary seductress in Under the Skin. The award-winning film by director, Jonathan Glazer, hits Blu-ray and DVD July 17. At the moment, this is #1 on my most wanted list.
“A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber,Under the Skin examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.“
