It’s a lazy summer in 1983 Italy, and 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is passing the days at his family’s villa. Into this picture of contentment strides Oliver, a dashing postgraduate studying under Elio’s father and awakening passionate desire in Elio. As romance blooms between the two, Elio gains a new understanding of who he is.
A sumptuous romance in the sun-drenched Italian countryside, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is the final chapter in director Luca Guadagnino’s “Desire” trilogy, following up on his similarly acclaimed I AM LOVE and A BIGGER SPLASH. Directing from a script co-written by legendary filmmaker James Ivory, Guadagnino gets personal in this gentle, intimate portrait of a summer that changes the film’s characters lives forever.
