The cannibal romance is getting bloody-good reviews but is Bones and All streaming yet? We've got good news
A coming-of-age story meets a retro road movie meets a horror gore-a-thon, Bones and All marks the cinematic reunion of leading man Timothée Chalamet (Don't Look Up, Dune) and Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino, who directed the actor to his first Oscar nomination in Call Me By Your Name. Instead of 1980s Italy, however, it's '80s America and instead of leisurely summer days spent eating peaches, it's tense nights spent eating, uh, people. (Despite the subject matter, Armie Hammer was not included in the project.)
An adaptation of the 2015 novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis, the film joins Chalamet with rising star Taylor Russell (Waves, Netflix's Lost in Space) as a young cannibalistic couple embarking on a road trip across the Reagan-era American Midwest. It's at times gorgeous, at times goofy and at times gory—just like regular growing up, right?
But if you want to enjoy this buzzy Chalamet title from your own home, here is all of the Bones and All streaming info you need.
Is 'Bones and All' streaming?
After having its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival on Friday, September 2, Bones and All will have a limited theatrical release in the US starting on Friday, November 18, before its wide release five days later on Wednesday, November 23.
Bones and All is currently available to watch at home on VOD. You can stream the arthouse flick in 4K Ultra HD for $20 as a rental on Vudu, Google Play or on Prime Video as part of Amazon's "In-Theater Movies at Home" program.

'Bones and All' plot: what is it about?
Per the official film synopsis, Bones and All is "a story of first love between Maren (Taylor Russell), a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee (Timothée Chalamet), an intense and disenfranchised drifter, as they meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey which takes them through the back roads, hidden passages and trap doors of Ronald Reagan's America. 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." Intrigued?
Despite the grisly experiences Maren and Lee have along the way, "I wasn’t interested at all in the shock value, which I hate," Guadagnino told Deadline. "I was interested in these people. I understood their moral struggle very deeply. I understood what was happening to them. I am not there to judge anybody. You can make a movie about cannibals if you’re there in the struggle with them, and you’re not codifying cannibalism as a topic or a tool for horror."
'Bones and All' runtime: how long is it?
The runtime for Bones and All is 2 hours and 10 minutes. It is rated R for language throughout, brief graphic nudity, some sexual content and strong, bloody violent content.
