Skin

3

A rare skin condition means a girl is an outcast on both sides of Apartheid

The stupidities of Apartheid are nailed in the true story of Sandra Laing, born dark-skinned to white parents in 1955 South Africa.

With Sophie Okonedo as Sandra, and Sam Neill and Alice Krige as her parents, Skin is conventionally told – but when a story’s this strong, who needs flourishes?
