BONES AND ALL - A teen drama starring two cannibals. We could define it like this, in short, the film by Luca Guadagnino presented at the Venice Film Festival. This is the film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis and follows the story of a young woman (Taylor Russell) abandoned by her father after yet another act of violence against others. He is not able to manage the (literal) hunger that moves the girl, so it is better to leave her to herself. Maren, this is the name of the protagonist, meets in her wanderings Lee (Timothée Chalamet), a character who lives on the margins of society, also a cannibal, and they will begin to travel in the womb of the United States. Loving each other and 'eating' together. “My tribe are the people I feel are like me. And they can live anywhere. I lost my grandmother this year and I know how hard it is. I read the script of this film for the first time during the pandemic and I felt even stronger the feeling of being isolated, of having no contact with others. Lee and Maren are two people who find a way to grow through love, 'said the 26-year-old actor at a press conference.

Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu and the crisis of intellectuals (and cinema): 'Who knows where we will see the films, but it doesn't matter

THE JUDGMENT OF OTHERS - Chalamet also told what fame means for him, but also the constant feeling of being under the eye of the judgments of others: 'Being young now, I speak only on behalf of my generation, means being judged intensely. I can't imagine what it's like to grow up under the onslaught of social media, and it was a relief to play characters struggling with an internal dilemma without the ability to go to Reddit, or Twitter, Instagram or TikTok. I'm not making a judgment, you can find your tribe online too. But I think it's hard to live these days. That's why I hope this film can be relevant ”.
