In honor of National Coming Out Day, Sony Pictures Classics released a new clip from Luca Guadagnino’s critically acclaimed Call Me by Your Name yesterday. The film, which had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, has been making the rounds on the festival circuit over the past couple of months, including stops in Venice and Toronto, and is destined for awards season glory.
Described as a “sensual and transcendent tale of first love,” Call Me By Your Name follows Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old American-Italian boy spending the summer with his family in their 17th-century villa, who sparks a romance with Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar who arrives to work as the annual summer intern with the boy’s father.
On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, Call Me By Your Name holds a well-deserved 96% on the Tomatometer (based on 52 reviews) and a critics consensus that reads: “Call Me by Your Name offers a melancholy, powerfully affecting portrait of first love, empathetically acted by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer.”
Call Me by Your Name will open in select theaters on November 24, 2017.
