Call Me by Your Name
Italy 2017, 132 min., drama/romance
Director: Luca Guadagnino

Set in the sun-dappled Italian countryside in the mid-eighties, this portrait of a brief romance between a young man and the graduate student who comes to stay with his family for the summer holiday is a stirring depiction of self-discovery and love’s ability to shake the foundations of our lives.

Stripped of the baggage that so often complicates and corrupts gay romance, the story is allowed to flourish as an unfiltered evocation of the agony and ecstasy of first love.
