Elio (Timothée Chalamet) has his bookish world irrevocably changed by handsome and carefree American student Oliver (Armie Hammer), who arrives in Northern Italy to assist Elio’s archaeologist father (Michael Stuhlbarg) with his research.
Oliver quickly becomes an object of desire for Elio, and mutual attraction leads to an intoxicating summer of love. Hammer and Chalamet’s onscreen chemistry is as authentic as the exotic setting, and it would be easy to pigeonhole Call Me by Your Name as this year’s Brokeback Mountain. However, the intense emotional bond that develops between the two transcends the category of queer cinema, and a beautifully written exchange of dialogue succinctly sums up the universal themes at the heart of this magnetic and remarkably affecting film.
