Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet in the year's top gay-appeal film

Call Me by Your Name

 

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME (dir. Luca Guadagnino, Italy/France/Brazil/USA, 130 mins, 2017)

It's the summer of 1983 in Tuscanny 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 specialising 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.
