A liberating road odyssey of two young people coming into their own, searching for identity and chasing beauty in a perilous world that cannot abide who they are: cannibals.
Language: English, subtitles: Dutch
Maren, a young woman who tries to survive on the edge of society, and Lee, a somewhat intense homeless man, fall for each other in this far from standard love story. Together they go on a true odyssey that will take them to small back roads, hidden passageways and trapdoors of the America of Ronald Reagan. But eventually all roads lead to their frightful past. Will their love endure?
According to critics, this is one of the best films 2022 had to offer. This film got reviews such as “Dark and Dreamy”; “Romantic”; “Deeply cinematic” and “Mesmerizing”, but also “Genuinely Frightening”. Timothée Chalamet is both beautiful and disturbing in this tale of young and forbidden love. It’s a parable for that terrible secret thought, scary but also euphoric, that creeps into everyone’s head in their teenage years: I am different. But lucky for us, we don’t share their appetite…
