Bones and All

Luca Guadagnino, Italy, USA 2022, 130’
Polish premiere
Armageddon Time Moonage Daydream

Bones and All is a story of the first love between Maren (Taylor Russell), a young woman learning to survive on the fringes of society, and Lee (Timothée Chalamet), an impetuous outcast and vagabond. During a thousand-mile odyssey they travel off-the-beaten paths, hidden alleys and encounter the various traps of Reagan-era America.

distributor synopsis

(...) the name on everyone’s lips is going to be Taylor Russell. The up-and-comer, who first gained prominence with her role in “Waves” (2019), takes center stage and devours every morsel of her time on screen. She brings grace and restraint, two qualities that don’t exactly spring to mind when you’re talking about a coming-of-age story about teen cannibals drawn together by mutual blood lust. I only wish I had more faith Oscar voters would give the movie its proper shake, as genre movies always face an uphill climb, no matter how well reviewed or beloved they are by critics and audiences.
