Call Me by Your Name
A star-making performance by Timothee Chalamet, career-best support by Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg, sunny Italian settings and nostalgic needle-drops combined to create sublime cinema. Giving the film a standing ovation as tears flowed, a post-movie wine with the studio locked in how we’d approach the release at Cinema Nova. Kicking off with a ‘Peach Party’ premiere screening, the film played all the way through the award season where it was nominated for Best Picture and won Best Adapted Screenplay at the Academy Awards. Cinema Nova’s audience embraced the film so thoroughly that the theatre out-grossed not only entire countries but whole continents. To this day I still get a chill when I think about the film, and it’s success is a career highlight.”
Directed by Luca Guadagnino and based on Andre Aciman’s romantic novel, during the summer of 1983 precocious 17-year-old Elio Perlman (Chalamet) is spending his 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 splendour 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. Co-written by James Ivory, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is a towering work of queer cinema; romantic, sensuous and utterly gorgeous.
