Madagascar Skin
First screened in May 2015
Director: Chris Newby. Cast: John Hannah, Bernard Hill, Mark Anthony, Mark Pettit, Danny Earl, Susan Harries, William Burke. Screenplay: Chris Newby.

Twitter Capsule: Defiantly odd scenario and aesthetic; think Jane Campion's Sweetie remade as gay Working Title dramedy. Appealing.

VOR:   Visually distinctive; detractors might say "exceedingly mannered." Withstands a full slide into preciousness. Intriguing postulation of what love can be and how it can work.
