Sony Pictures Classics unveiled new photos of its upcoming film “Call Me By Your Name.”
The story, based on the novel by André Aciman, centers on Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old spending the summer of 1983 in northern Italy. The American-Italian teenager wiles away the long summer days at his family’s 17th century villa, flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio is close with his parents. His father (Michael Stulhbarg) is a professor of Greco-Roman culture. His mother Annella (Amira Casar) is a translator who values high culture. The summer takes an unexpected turn when a charming American named Oliver (Armie Hammer) arrives to intern for Elio’s father.
The film is described as a “sensual and transcendent tale of first love.”
“Call Me By Your Name” was directed by Luca Guadagnino from a script by three-time Academy Award nominee James Ivory.
This film will play at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. It will be released in US theaters on November 24.
