Set in a 17th-century Northern Italian villa, Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sensuous love affair that awakens over the course of the sun-drenched summer of 1983. Timothée Chalamet plays Elio, a precocious 17-year-old waiting to explore and share the secrets of love. When Elio’s archeologist father invites his 24-year-old American grad student (Armie Hammer) to move in to their home to study, a relationship develops. They find themselves increasingly distracted from the heady, abundant beauty of classical music, Italian food, Greco-Roman culture, and gorgeous countryside to be consumed by their mutually arousing desire. Based on the novel by André Aciman. 2017, DCP, in English, Italian, French, German, and Hebrew, 132 min.
