Carine Adler, Lady Reid of Cardowan (born 1948) is a Brazilian screenwriter and film director.


She is probably best known as the second wife of British government minister Dr John Reid, Baron Reid, whom she married in 2002. She has a son Hal from a previous marriage, and has two stepsons with Reid.

oldfilmsflicker on Carine Adler's "Under The Skin"


Adler's break came when the British Film Institute asked her to develop her short film Touch and Go into a full-length feature. The result was Under the Skin, the screenplay for which took her two years to write. According to Richard Armstrong in The Rough Guide to Film, "What distinguishes her small oeuvre is the fusion of her protagonists' desire and their sense of inferiority."
