This much-loved film from auteur Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) explores the tentative relationship that blooms between Elio (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old boy on the cusp of adulthood, and his professor father’s older research assistant Oliver (Armie Hammer), who joins the family at their vacation villa in Italy over the course of a summer in the early 1980s. With an Oscar-winning script by James Ivory, Guadagnino has fashioned André Aciman’s 2007 novel of sexual awakening into a note-perfect tale of forbidden love.
