The feast was well received.
Bones and All–a cannibal thriller from MGM Studios–premiered at this week’s Venice Film Festival before its Nov. 23 theatrical release, and came away with two prestigious awards, according to a report on Deadline.
Luca Guadagnino–best known for helming the 2018 Suspiria (based on the 1977 Italian horror film of the same name)–scored the Best Director Award, and star Taylor Russell won the Best Newcomer prize.
Bones and All–written by David Kajganich and based on a novel by Camille DeAngelis–follows Maren Yearly (Russell) on a cross-country trip “as she searches for the father she’s never met in an attempt to understand why she has the urge to kill and eat the people who love her,” according to the synopsis.
The cast also includes Timothee Charmalet (Dune), Mark Rylance (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Andre Holland (Moonlight), Michael Stuhlbarg (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness), Francesca Scorsese (The Departed), Anna Cobb (We’re All Going to the World’s Fair) and Chloe Sevigny (American Horror Story).
