Under the Skin

Character mistake: Early in the film we are repeatedly shown the alien character flirting happily with various men, relaxed, confident, even socially forward, in fact often more articulate and socially at ease than the various Glaswegians she encounters. Yet later on, inexplicably, all this social nous mysteriously disappears and she is completely baffled and blindsided by the simplest of social interactions, almost a mute. Since the film has virtually no plot it's hard to see why this jarring turnaround should be so.

Sir John Danvers

Female Voice: Do you think I'm pretty?
First Victim: Aye, I think you're gorgeous.
Female Voice: Do you?
First Victim: Aye, definitely.
