Timothée Chalamet Leads Cannibal Love Story ‘Bones And All’

American actor Timothée Chalamet released the first teaser of Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and All on his Twitter account on 11 August.

Chalamet has previously worked with Guadagnino on the 2017 film Call Me by Your Name for which the actor earned his first Academy Award nomination.

Bones and All is Guadagnino’s first film set in the US. It is a cannibal love story based on the novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis and centres on a road-tripping couple — Lee (Chalamet) and Maren (Taylor Russell) — in the 1980s.

According to the official synopsis, the film tells “a story of first love between Maren, a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee, an intense and disenfranchised drifter, as they meet and join together for a 1,000-mile odyssey that takes them 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.”

Although the less-than-30-second teaser does not reveal much about the film, it fascinates viewers with its tense atmosphere and suspenseful shrieks.

“You don’t think I’m a bad person,” Lee asks Maren at one point in the teaser. Then, flashing scenes show the couple running amid other chaotic scenes with shrieks filling up the background noise.

The teaser ends with Maren telling Lee, “All I think is that I love you.”

Besides Chalamet and Russell, the film also stars André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon-Green, Francesca Scorsese, Jessica Harper, Jake Horowitz, Mark Rylance and Michael Stuhlbarg.
