Love at the End of America

“Bones and All” is a movie about first love between Maren (Taylor Russell), a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee (Timothée Chalamet), an intense and disenfranchised drifter. As travel together for a thousand-mile journey they will go through the back roads, hidden passages and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America. But despite their best efforts, all roads lead back to their terrifying pasts and to a final stand that will determine whether their love can survive their otherness.

“Bones and All” has been directed by Luca Guadagnino, who recently won the Silver Lion for Best Director at the 2022 Venice Film Festival for the film.
