Bones and All (2022)

Directed by Luca Guadagnino

Abandoned by her father, a young woman embarks on a thousand-mile odyssey through the backroads of America where she meets a disenfranchised drifter. 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.

Intellectually, the film could have also offered more–it never explicitly addresses the potential metaphorical meaning of cannibalism, and I took it as standing rather generically for the experience of being an outsider. Ascribing a more specific meaning to the film’s depiction of cannibalism is made difficult by the fact that Maren and Lee’s actions have serious consequences for innocent people.
