It’s the summer of 1983 and 17-year-old Elio (Timothee Chalamet) encounters first love when the suave Oliver (Armie Hammer) arrives to attend the annual internship that Elio’s father offers to doctoral students. Drenched in culture and the warm Italian sun, Elio and Oliver’s courtship unfolds with all the sweetness, awkwardness and quick-wit of youth – a balancing act between longing to be loved and longing to impress.

Director Luca Guadagnino’s (I Am Love, 2009; A Bigger Splash, 2015) masterful touch evokes all the viewer’s senses, creating an Edenic world where memory comes to life; poolside chats, bike rides along tree-lined roads, peach orchards, and classical art combine to create an air of innocence and idealised childhood summers. Accompanied by Sufjan Steven’s signature blend of roughly-hewn, dream-like ballads, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is a love story about self-discovery, transformation and the sensuality of cinematic art.
