The long-anticipated trailer for one of this year’s most critically acclaimed films is here.
Based on the 2007 novel by André Aciman, Call Me By Your Name tells the story of Elio (Best Actor contender Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year old whose academia parents rent an Italian villa every summer and every summer rent out to a young, college-age lodger to assist them in excavating and preserving artifacts. This year it’s Oliver (Armie Hammer), with whom Elio becomes surprisingly and deeply enamored by. Elio is book smart but has no ‘real life’ experience. Oliver is older, cultured but has a loose casual nature that Elio envies.
The film also stars Michael Stuhlbarg in an awards-worthy turn as Elio’s father. Featuring stunning cinematography and one (of two) new Sufjan Stevens songs, the Call Me By Your Name trailer will whet your appetite for the summer and nourish you like a ripened peach.
Sony Pictures Classics has given Call Me By Your Name a prime awards season release date, November 24th. The film is currently at #3 on the Best Picture rankings from the Gold Rush Gang.
