After months of festival praise and a recent gala screening at AFI Fest 2017, Luca Guadagnino’s CALL ME BY YOUR NAME has finally opened in cinemas.
A portrayal, both devastating and edifying, of a teenager discovering his sexuality, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME features a superlative lead performance by Timothée Chalamet as young Elio, a live wire summering “somewhere in northern Italy” in the early 1980s.
The script—based on André Aciman’s 2007 novel—was written by James Ivory, and Sufjan Stevens wrote two new songs—”Mystery of Love” and “Visions of Gideon”—for the film.
