"Bones And All" is a story of first love between Maren, a young woman learning how to survive in the margins of society, and Lee, an intense and disenfranchised drifter; 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. (Gary Reber)

Special features include five featurettes: "A Look Inside" (HD ), "Luca Guadagnino:The Vision Of Bones And All" (HD ), "Meet Lee" (HD ), "Meet Maren" (HD ) and "Outside In Love" (HD )

The 1.85:1 1080p picture, reviewed on a VIZIO Quantum X P85QX-JI UHD/HDR display, was photographed on Kodak Vision3 film stock using the Arriflex 235 and Panavision Panaflex Millennium XL2 camera systems and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture exhibits a filmic appearance with a warm and rich color palette, Hues are realistic and natural. Flesh tones are perfectly natural. Contrast is well balanced with natural black levels, revealing shadows and realistic white levels. Resolution is on the softer side though closeups are revealing of detail in facial features, clothing and objects. This is a relatively low-budget presentation that exhibits realistic imagery. (Gary Reber)

The Dolby Atmos/Dolby TrueHD 7.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with generally good spatial integration. Atmospherics are realistic such as the amusement park setting, and sound effects add realism. The orchestral score is at times haunting and edgy and spans the soundstage, extending to the surrounds.

The Immersive Sound element is comprised of an extension of the music, various atmospherics, Maren's father's cassette dialogue, thunder, grocery store sounds, a Ronald Reagan newscast, amusement park sounds, aggressive bird chirps, Maren's mother's dialogue and various din effects. This is a very effective height layer that effectively enhances the spatial dimensionality of the soundfield.

This is a holosonic® spherical surround soundtrack that delivers a feel of realism in real life settings. (Gary Reber)
