«Mysterious Skin» is a 2004 mystery drama. Gregg Araki's riveting drama, based on a novel by Scott Heim, brings together two unlikely heroes (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Brady Corbet): a young man who makes a living by selling his body on the streets and another who's convinced he was once abducted by aliens. But it seems they have unspeakable tragedy in common as both of them discover they were abused as children. What results is a friendship built on despair but rife with hope. «Mysterious Skin» directed by Gregg Araki. You can download «Mysterious Skin» right here!
