Call Me By Your Name

A gorgeous film that makes you want to go to Italy or at least eat Italian food.  The days and nights are lazy and beautiful.  It is amazing how perfect the environment, how understanding the parents and friends are, how easy it all is.  Oliver (Armie Hammer) is trying very hard not to fall in love with Elio (Timothee Chalmet), who is trying very hard to figure out who he is.  Somewhere between boyhood and manhood, the two find their way together for a brief time.

We saw this movie at the MARC theater (its second screening) at the Sundance Film Festival 2017.   Hammer, Chalamet and Luca Guadagnino were there.  They discussed their time in Italy, how they had become a family, living and eating together.  Interestingly, Timothee spent months in an apartment there learning to play the piano.   They all seemed to have so much joy regarding making the movie, it made us like it more.

Official Synopsis

It’s the summer of 1983, and precocious 17-year-old Elio Perlman is spending the days with his family at their 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy. He soon meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student who’s working as an intern for Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of their surroundings, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
