The first trailer for Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and All is here. Starring Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell, the film tracks a young couple with a shared taste for human flesh. The film, described as a “romance and horror” story, is based on the novel by Camille DeAngelis.
Russell co-stars as Maren, a cannibal – or ‘eater’ – who hits the road in search of companionship following her father abandoning her. Eventually, she meets Lee (Chalamet), a fellow eater, and the pair fall in love.
The film also stars Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jessica Harper and Chloë Sevigny.
It’s the second time Guadagnino has collaborated with Chalamet – the two first worked together on Call Me By Your Name, which proved to be Chalamet’s breakout role.
“There is something about the disenfranchised, about people living on the margins of society, that I am drawn toward and touched by. I want to see where the possibilities lie for them, enmeshed within the impossibility they face,” Guadagnino said in a statement about the film.
“The movie is for me a meditation on who I am and how I can overcome what I feel, especially if it is something I cannot control in myself. And lastly, and most importantly, when will I be able to find myself in the gaze of the other?”
Bones and All hits theatres on November 23. You can watch the trailer below.
