Take a look at the attention-grabbing trailer that’s arrived for Bones and All, reuniting Timothée Chalamet with Call Me by Your Name director Luca Guadagnino (Suspiria, A Bigger Splash, I Am Love).
The film is a love story between two marginalised individuals – who also happen to have violent, cannibalistic tendencies. Taylor Russell (Waves, Lost in Space) plays Maren, a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society. Chalamet is Lee, an intense and disenfranchised drifter. The two meet and embark on a thousand-mile odyssey which takes them through the back roads, hidden passages, and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America. While Maren and Lee lust for blood (and each other), all roads seem to lead back to their terrifying pasts and a final stand that will determine whether their love can survive their otherness.
The film is an adaptation of the 2015 novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis. The screenplay was written by David Kajganich, who penned Guadagnino films Suspiria and A Bigger Splash.
Critics have been, for the most part, praising this one, calling it a stomach-churning, yet undeniably romantic and tragic love story. Sounds like you’ll need both tissues and a bucket.
Bones and All, also starring Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon Green, and Jessica Harper, opens in select U.S. cinemas on November 18th before going wide on November 23rd. The film arrives in Australian cinemas on November 24th.
