Bones and All, a film about loneliness, a coming-of-age tale, and occasionally a horror, is directed by Luca Guadagnino from a script by David Kajganich. 

The latter is the worst element of the movie, and Guadagnino only dabbles in it before backing off.  

Although Bones and All is too subdued to be a true horror movie, its other elements have substance.  

Bones and All isn’t always strong, but Taylor Russell gives a fantastic leading performance and excels in examining human connection.  

Bones and All, a film adaptation of Camille DeAngelis’ book, centers on Maren (Taylor Russell), an original adolescent.  

Although she is alone, the spectator quickly understands why: Maren has been a cannibal since she was a baby.  

They have had to travel around a lot to stay safe, and her father (André Holland) has always known. 

Later, Lee (Timothée Chalamet), another recluse cannibal with his own set of psychological issues, is introduced to Maren.  

The two go on a road journey to look for Maren’s mother, falling in love along the way. 

The actor effortlessly transitions into Sully’s peculiarity and makes his scenes some of the most intense ones the movie has to offer.
