Snakeskin is a haunting and atmospheric drama set in rural New Zealand. The film tells the story of Alice (Melanie Lynskey), a young woman who lives in isolation with her father on a remote farm. Alice is haunted by the death of her mother, and as she struggles with her grief, she finds herself drawn into a tangled web of forbidden desire, dangerous secrets, and dark family history.

One day, Alice meets a handsome stranger named Seth (Boyd Kestner), who is visiting from America. Seth is charming and mysterious, and Alice is immediately drawn to him. As they spend more time together, Alice and Seth become deeply involved, but Alice begins to suspect that there is something sinister about Seth's past.

At the same time, Alice is dealing with her father's failing health and the growing realization that she may be trapped on the farm for the rest of her life. She is torn between her love for Seth and her duty to her family, and as the tension builds, she must make a difficult choice that will change her life forever.

Throughout the film, there is a sense of unease and tension that permeates every scene. The landscape is bleak and foreboding, and the characters are haunted by the weight of their pasts. The performances are superb, particularly Lynskey, who creates a powerful and complex portrayal of a young woman struggling to find her place in the world.

Snakeskin is a slow-burning drama that is both atmospheric and emotionally resonant. It is a film that stays with you long after the credits roll, and it is a testament to the power of independent filmmaking.
