Debut Trailer for Acclaimed Queer Drama CALL ME BY YOUR NAME with Armie Hammer & Timothée Chalamet

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is a critically-acclaimed coming-of-age drama film directed by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) and written by Guadagnino, James Ivory, and Walter Fasano, based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by André Aciman. Premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, the film stars Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar, Esther Garrel, and Victoire Du Bois.

It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Chalamet), a precocious 17-year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Garrel). Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows wit h natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. One day, Oliver (Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
