lukeirvin’s review published on Letterboxd:
Bones and All is the story of Maren, who is abruptly thrown into society to find her way while also dealing with some unordinary urges.
Maren, played by Taylor Russell, really stills the show here. The opening scene sticks with you through this entire run-time. She has such a strong presence and stays on track with her mission to discover more about her roots and why she is the way that she is.
Her interactions with both Mark Rylance and Timothee Chalamet are unique in their own ways and both get plenty of screen time. But the romantic portion of this film between Tayler or Chalamet feels a bit lack-luster. This is much more of a coming-of-age story with horror elements vs. a love story. But the ideas are there and are ones I wish they would have explored more.
But with some really amazing cinematography, a solid score, and really good acting, this is still a good watch that will leave you with a mix of emotions.
