Call Me By Your Name

Call Me By Your Name

Brit James Ivory (Howards End, Remains of the Day, A Room With a View) adapts the book from André Aciman, and Italian Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) directs this lush, louche and incredibly languid coming-of-age love story. Teenage Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is an upper-upper middle-class Jewish-American kid lazing around his academic parents' Italian villa for the summer. Twentysomething Oliver (Armie Hammer) is the Adonis-like graduate student who shows up to push papers for Elio's dad. The two loll about the pool, eating ripe fruit and glaring at each other under hooded eyelids. After an hour or so of that, Elio gets around to confessing that he might be gay and might be attracted to Oliver. Lots of walks through the picturesque Italian countryside and a few incredibly academic debates ensue. Also, some sex. A tiny bit anyway. FULL REVIEW: Languid romance withers under the Tuscan sun by Devin D. O’Leary (1/11/2018). 132 minutes R.
