About the Movie

In the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, one of America's favorite tourist attractions, lies one of her poorest counties, The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. For Police officer Rudy Yellow Lodge, the painful legacy of Indian existence is brought home every night as he locks up drunk and disorderly Indians, which frequently includes his own alcoholic brother, Mogie. Rudy's frustration with the alcoholism on the 'rez' leads him to take the law into his own hands, but his trail of vengeance ends tragically when he unwittingly injures Mogie. Ironically, their relationship achieves redemption after Rudy's tragic error in judgment, and the brothers begin the process of mending their fractured relationship. Ultimately, Rudy is able to honor his big brother, as well as his people, with one exhilarating and life-affirming act of defiance, revealing the redemptive power of the love between the two brothers.

Fresh: Skins is a wrenching, uncompromisingly bleak film, but its stars ... fill the screen with warmth, humor and spiritual yearning in the face of hardship and tragedy. – Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Played by Graham Greene ... in one of the year's best performances, [Mogie's] a fully dimensional character. – Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 11, 2002

Rotten: Patchy combination of soap opera, low-tech magic realism and, at times, ploddingly sociological commentary. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It bites hard. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010
