Call Me by Your Name

Panorama | Special Presentations

In the summer of 1983, "somewhere in Northern Italy," Elio (Timothée Chalamet), the 17-year-old son of an American archeology professor (Michael Stuhlbarg), lounges, reads, composes and shows a slight interest in a local girl his age. But then his father’s apprentice washes up on the Mediterranean coast. Oliver (Armie Hammer) is a chef d’oeuvre with an impressive physique, and Elio’s ploy to pass the time is diverted just as his passions reach full bloom. A visceral urge, consummated in a late-night dance to the propulsive rhythms of The Psychedelic Furs’ "Love my Way," brings their desires to the forefront and heightens the boy’s dilemma of denial: "Is it better to speak, or die?"

André Aciman’s 2007 novel is the perfect vessel for I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino’s extravagant style. Working from a screenplay co-written by the always reliable James Ivory, Guadagnino and his illustrious cast build the drama to an insurmountable emotional tenor, imbuing this sun-drenched romance with the resplendence of overlong summers and the first loves they often arouse.

"Call Me by Your Name has a choking emotional intensity that will be apparent to anyone who’s ever dared to reach out to another."—Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
