new Almodovar film@Little Theater
Dear Film Fan,
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, our February 10-12 feature might cause your heart to skip a beat. THE SKIN I LIVE IN is jam-packed with director Pedro Almodovar’s signature themes of passion, love, comedy and a titillating dollop of sci-fi for spice. It tells the story of Dr. Robert Ledgard, an eminent, but unscrupulous plastic surgeon, who, after his wife is burned in a car crash, becomes interested in creating a new skin which he believes could have saved her. For twelve years he works to cultivate this impervious skin replacement, but to do so he needs an accomplice and a human guinea pig. His faithful and doting childhood caretaker becomes his accomplice, but who becomes (and what happens to) his guinea pig makes a master film maker's latest an over-the-top mix of horror and melodrama.
Showtimes for THE SKIN I LIVE IN will be:
Friday, February 10 – 7:00 and 9:30pm
Saturday, February 11 – 4:30, 7:00 and 9:30pm
Sunday, February 12 – 2:30, 5:00 and 7:30pm
