About Call Me by Your Name

 It’s the summer of 1983, in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman, (Timothée Chalamet) a 17-year-old American-Italian boy spends his days in his family's 17th century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). One day Oliver, (Armie Hammer) a charming, 24-year-old American scholar working on his doctorate arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. Amidst the sun-drenched splendor of this sensual setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever. Luca Guadagnino’s latest film is adapted from the novel by André Aciman, with a screenplay by Guadagnino, Walter Fasano and James Ivory. Luminous performances from Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and a break out turn from Timothée Chalamet buoy Guadagnino’s gorgeously realized coming of age drama. An instant classic, Call Me By Your Name bolsters Guadagnino’s rightful reputation as one of the most inspiring filmmakers working today.
