Run, don't walk, to Netflix to catch this horny (and Oscar-winning!) gay drama before it's gone!

Apparently Netflix rang in the New Year by choosing violence!

January is notorious for being an entertainment wasteland where few new movies and TV shows come out and those that do tend to be subpar, which makes it all the more frustrating that Oscar-winning gay romance Call Me by Your Name is being yanked off of Netflix at the end of the month.

There are so few queer movies out there, you’d think Netflix would want to hang on to one as critically acclaimed and beloved as Call Me by Your Name, but sadly this achingly beautiful gay gem is leaving the platform on January 31.

In case you’ve missed it, the coming-of-age romance was helmed by Bones and All director Luca Guadagnino and stars Timothée Chalamet as 17-year-old Elio Perlman and Armie Hammer as Oliver, a 24-year-old graduate-student hired to assist Elio's father. The film, based on a novel by Andre Aciman, follows the two young men as they discover their awakening desire for each other during one sun-dappled summer in Northern Italy in 1983.

If you’ve never seen it, you’re gonna want to run to Netflix now for the scene with the peach alone. Trust us, you don’t want to miss it!

Also leaving Netflix this month are much-loved movies like BlacKkKlansman, Get Out, and The Bling Ring, as well as trashy guilty-pleasure reality shows like The Real World: Season 28 and Love Island USA: Season 2.
