When Call Me By Your Name made its premiere at Sundance in January, it was lauded with praise by critics and received a standing ovation. But it's not until now, that the first trailer for the movie has finally been published, and the theatrical release date set for November 24, that we finally know what everyone has been gushing about.
The film is about a 17-year-old boy, Elio, played by Timothee Chalamet, who's living at home with his professor parents in Italy for the summer when a young, handsome American man named Oliver (Armie Hammer) comes to assist his dad. Naturally, Elio finds Oliver attractive, and a romance ensues.
Call Me By Your Name is directed by Luca Guadagnino, whose made waves with his films I Am Love and A Bigger Splash. It's adapted from the queer 2007 novel by Andre Aciman, and according to reviews, it's being described as steamy and sensual, so we don't think it's going to disappoint on that front. And it's rated R--none of that PG-13 bullshit.
