Call Me by Your Name


Call Me by Your Name
Set in the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, a precocious 17-year-old young man spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend. He enjoys a close relationship with his father, an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother, a translator. While his sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. One day, a 24-year-old American college graduate student working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping the professor. The two youths soon discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever. The film has numerous awards and nominations to its credit, including four Oscar noms.

What the Critics say

Herman Eloff quote iconI’m thankful for films like Call Me by Your Name for reminding us that love, despite its cutthroat demands, is worth us embracing it with total abandonment. Because, even if it’s just for a brief moment, we all deserve to love and be loved.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconIt’s a near picture-perfect coming of age tale and a look at a young summer romance that all involved know won’t transcend that seasonal moment but nonetheless flourishes in the time it has and leaves a lasting impression.
