Roundabout reunites writer Joshua Harmon ('Bad Jews,' 'Significant Other') and director Daniel Aukin ('Bad Jews') for this scorching examination of beauty, youth, and sex, starring Idina Menzel. More…
Reeling from her ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who’s 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi’s son. Who’s also 20. And definitely gay. 'Skintight' assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what’s on the inside.
