The young romance film is like no other that belongs to this genre.
Italian director Luca Guadagnino is back with yet another horror film after Suspiria called Bones and All. Based on the best-selling novel by Camille DeAngelis, this movie stars Taylor Rusell and Timothee Chalamet as a cannibalistic couple that travels across America in the late 1980s.
Bones and All made its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival on September 2, 2022. The film will have a limited release on November 18, 2022; after that the film will have a proper release on November 23, 2022, during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.
The young romance film is like no other that belongs to this genre. Bones and All has a very gore and dark side to the main characters. Maren Yearly has been a cannibal since the age of just one or two years old and her first victim was her own babysitter. Every relationship in her life has ended in the same way; she dines on them. Catch this film to find out what happens when someone like her meets someone like her...
Taylor Russell plays Maren Yearly, a woman who lives in exile, completely secluded from society just because of her cannibalistic urges. Russell first got recognition after her portrayal of Judy Robinson in the Netflix sci-fi series Lost in Space. She has also appeared in movies such as Before I fall, Waves, and Escape Rooms film. Here's what Guadagnino said about Rusell as the lead Bones and All:
“I’ve been a fan of Taylor Russell since I saw her in Waves, and I made it a point to myself to make sure we found something to do together. When I read the script, I went straight to her because she is such a bright, sensible actress. This is a very romantic story, about the impossibility of love and yet, the need for it. Even in extreme circumstances. Timmy and Taylor have this power, this gleaming power, to portray these universal feelings.”
Timothée Chalamet plays lee, a young drifter and fellow cannibal who falls in love with Maren. Guadagnino spoke about reuniting with Chalamet for Bones and All:
"I’d been handed this beautiful script by David Kajganich, and while I was reading it, I felt like I knew how to make this movie. At the same time, the second I read it, I said, I think only Timothee can play this role. It was serendipity because he was in Rome and I was in Rome, and we met after this year of Covid constriction, and we could meet and spend time together. He’s fantastic, a great performer, and to see him soaring the way he is doing now, I feel proud of him. And this character is something very new for him, both endearing and heartbreaking."
