Sun-dappled, erudite and sensual, Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name is based on André Aciman's 2007 novel, adapted here for the screen by James Ivory. It's northern Italy in the summer of 1983, and precocious Italian-American teenager Elio (Timothée Chalamet) spends his days in the family villa - engorged on classical music and scholarly pursuits. Intellectually, Elio is a fully-fledged adult, but when a charming American student (Armie Hammer) arrives in their midst - awakening desires beyond his immediate understanding - it will change both of their lives forever.
