Synopsis

18-year-old Jason Dorkel belongs to a community of travelers. He is preparing for his baptism when Fred, his half-brother, returns after several years in prison. Along with their impulsive and violent brother, Mikael, the three Dorkels go on a trip looking for copper.

Our take

Entwining elements of documentary and conventions of genre filmmaking, Eat Your Bones surveys its specific Northern France socio-economic setting, raising the film’s stakes and setting up a hugely rewarding second-half, changing pace, subverting expectations, and truly kicking into high gear.
