Timothée Chalamet has swapped peaches for human flesh in his new film Bones and All which audiences have called one of the best films ever made. Watch the gory trailer below:
Directed by Luca Guadagnino and based on the book of the same name by Camille DeAngelis, the film takes place in the 1980s and follows Maren Yearly (Russell) who is forced to fend for herself as she travels to find her mother.
During her trip she meets Lee (Chalamet) and the pair decide to travel together through Indiana to Kentucky and eventually Minnesota.
The film has been met with critical acclaim with an appetising 85 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
It turns out regular viewers have also devoured the film with no crumbs left.
“Bones and All has to be one of the best movies I’ve seen all year 10/10 5 stars like woah,” one fan shared on Twitter.
While a Twitter critique said Bones and All is ‘the best horror film’ they’ve seen this year and praised the use of ‘fear, suspense, violence, blood and other dark components to explore things that are universal to all people’.
A third Twitter user shared pictures from the film and declared: “Bones and All is truly something special, it’s a very different type of horror film that combines horror with coming of age elements and does this perfectly, the performances are all fantastic, Taylor Russell gives one of the absolute best performances of the year.”
While a fourth shared: “I saw Bones and All last night, and i’m not kidding, it is one of the best movies i think I’ve ever seen.”
"Bones and All is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time wow," another Twitter user confessed.
The film has also been compared to art by some viewers, with one Twitter user writing: "Bones and All such a beautiful film. not many films can make me feel sorrow and disgust simultaneously. as soon as it opened with close ups of painted landscapes i knew i'd be witnessing art. great score. great camera work and cinematography. amazing performances. go see it now."
In an interview with Tyla, Chalamet explained the meaning behind the cannibalism in the film.
"I saw it more of a story of outsiders and outsiders that have their insecurities, but also their beliefs in themselves confirmed by being in love and finding someone else like them,” the 26-year-old shared.
Bones and All is in cinemas now.
