With regards to playing a flesh eater inBones andAll, Rylance argued that the cannibals aren’t sociopaths or psychopaths; they will have an affliction and theyre conscious that its a harmful affliction, and theyre attempting to make the very best of a negative situation, he explained.

They would like to do good, Rylance insisted. Theyre attempting to be good. Theyre ethical characters; they discuss rules.

Indeed, the films targeted at those that constantly break the guidelines: humans. Oh, my God! Rylance cried. Americans and the English people! We have been consuming UNDER-DEVELOPED people right now.

Now, are we likely to stop? We cant! Were consuming the planet earth! he said looking utterly disgusted.

At its heart though, Bones and All is really a love story, said Rylance, relating to the fine young cannibals played by Chalamet and Russell.
