Director Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) returns to lush Italian countryside with Call Me By Your Name, based on André Aciman’s acclaimed novel. Set in 1987, Timothée Chalamet stars as Elio, a prodgiously talented 17 year old who spends holidays with his parents in a village in Northern Italy. Each summer, his academic father (Michael Stuhlbarg – The Shape of Water) invites a graduate student to live with the family for six weeks, and this year it’s the turn of Oliver (Armie Hammer), an American who breezes into town with louche confidence. As the season progresses, a relationship builds between Elio and Oliver. From tentative glances to lust-filled nighttime escapes, you won’t see a better romance this year.
Why Should You See This Film?
Call Me By Your Name aches with beauty. From the jaw-dropping Italian villa to the extended summer lunch sequences, and from the dance floor of the local disco to the chiselled bone structure of Armie Hammer, this movie is almost too much! ALMOST. Instead, it’s exquisite, our programmer’s favourite film of 2017 and already gathering much Oscars buzz. OH! And the soundtrack! Perfection.
