See Timothée Chalamet & Taylor Russell as a Cannibals in Love in First “Bones and All” Teaser

Timothée Chalamet has revealed the first teaser for Bones and All, his upcoming collaboration with his Call Me By Your Name director Luca GuadagninoBones and All will make its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival at the end of this month (August 31, to be exact) and is one of the fest’s most eagerly-anticipated entries.

Guadagnino’s film is an adaptation of Camille DeAngelis’s novel of the same name by his longtime collaborator screenwriter David Kajganich, who scripted his films Suspiria and A Bigger Splash. In Bones and All, we have a highly unusual coming-of-age love story centered on two young lovers, Maren (Taylor Russell) and Lee (Chalamet), as they take a road trip across America. The catch? Maren and Lee are cannibals. The brief glimpse provided by Chalamet shows us the two lovers on the road in the U.S., cut with a few sinister screams and visions of a darker current running beneath their journey. Russell and Chalamet are joined by Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon-Green, Jessica Harper, and Jake Horowitz.

Check out the teaser here:

“There is something about the disenfranchised, about people living on the margins of society, that I am drawn toward and touched by,” Guadagnino said in a statement. “I want to see where the possibilities lie for them, enmeshed within the impossibility they face. 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?”

Here’s the synopsis for Bones and All:

A story of 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 they meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey which 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.

Bones and All debuts in theaters on November 23.
