While sporting a number of scary facial tattoos, Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, King Kong) is nearly unrecognizable as he plays a neo-Nazi skinhead seeking redemption in the official trailer for "Skin."

The hard-edged drama also stars Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cakes, Bird Box), Vera Farmiga (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, The Conjuring Franchise), Bill Camp (The Night Of, The Looming Tower), and Mike Colter (Luke Cage).

Inspired by the life story of reformed skinhead Bryon Widner, "Skin" is the feature-length adaptation of Israeli-born writer-director Guy Nattiv's critically acclaimed short film of the same name, which earned an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short earlier this year.

The film follows a heavily tattooed man named Bryon (Bell) who, at an young age, was lured into the dark world of white supremacy by a close family friend (Camp) and his neo-Nazi wife (Farmiga). Now a full-fledged member of a local white-power gang, Bryon finds himself questioning the racist ideology of his organization. When he enters into a relationship with a lovely single mother (Macdonald) of three young children, Bryon decides to leave his gang, putting himself in great danger.

"Skin" will be released exclusively on DirecTV June 27th, before opening in select theaters and VOD July 26th.

synopsis:
After a difficult childhood drives him into the grasps of a white supremacist gang, Bryon (Jamie Bell, delivering a visceral, explosive performance) tries to escape to a new life, all the while questioning whether he's capable of undoing -- and repenting for -- the evil he's done.

Filmmaker Guy Nattiv, whose short film of the same title won the Academy Award earlier this year, makes his English-language feature debut with this galvanizing story of transformation, inspired by actual events.
