When he was eight, Brian Lackey (Brady Corbet) woke up in the crawlspace beneath his house with his nose bleeding, having no idea how he got there. After that, his life is different–he is afraid of the dark, wets the bed and is plagued by terrible nightmares. Now 18, Brian believes that he was abducted by aliens.
Neil McCormick (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is the ultimate beautiful outsider, the boy everyone loves from afar but is afraid of when they get too close. Also 18, Neil longs for the relationship he had with his baseball coach when he was eight years old.
Neil’s search for what he thinks is love leads him to New York City. Brian’s (Brady Corbet) search for what happened to him leads him to Neil. Together they come to realize that the events that shaped them most were not what they seemed to be.
Based on the widely acclaimed novel by Scott Heim, MYSTERIOUS SKIN puts us inside the hearts and minds of two very different boys living very different lives who maybe aren’t as different as they first appear.
This is a joint event with the New York LGBT Movie Fan Meetup.
