The film is currently slated to have its world premiere this Friday, September 2 at the 2022 Venice International Film Festival. This will then be followed by its theatrical release on November 23.
Based on Camille DeAngelis’ 2015 novel, Bones and All is being described as a coming-of-age romantic horror story centering around a young woman’s journey across the country in hopes of finding her father, who’s the only one that can answer why she has the urge to kill and eat the people she loves.
“The film will center around a story of first love between Maren (Russell), a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee (Chalamet), an intense and disenfranchised drifter, as they meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey that takes them through the back roads, hidden passages, and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America,” reads the synopsis. “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.”
Additional cast includes Mark Rylance, Michael Stulhbarg, Chloe Sevigny, Francesca Scorsese, Jessica Harper, André Holland, and Halloween director David Gordon Green.
