Thanlis’s review published on Letterboxd:
I spent a lot of the movie wondering if the cannibalism was a metaphor, because it feels pretty significant that a couple of kids are disowned by their families for their inner natures, right? Especially in Reagan's America? And there's something about that sleepover scene, and there's certainly something about the way Chalamet's Lee finds food at the carnival. I could go on, but yeah, I'm convinced.
It's a really lovely movie in and of itself. I like that it likes the Midwest.
And hey, Jessica Harper! If Luca Guadagnino would like to single-handedly bring about the Jessica Harper renaissance, I am here for it.
