SYNOPSIS: The new film by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman, adapted for the screen by James Ivory. It’s the summer of 1983 in beautiful northern Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet, Lady Bird, Interstellar), a precocious 17-year-old Italian-American boy, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music. When Oliver (Armie Hammer), a handsome American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern to help Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor of Greco-Roman culture, Elio takes notice. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the idyllic setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
