Timothée Chalamet Reveals What He Was Listening to During Final 'Call Me By Your Name' Scene

Awards season may be over — finally — but that doesn't mean we're done hearing behind-the-scenes secrets from the gayest movie of 2017, Call Me By Your Name. The film is now out on DVD, complete with commentary by star Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg (who played Elio's father and was robbed of an Oscar nomination). 

In the commentary, Chalamet reveals several interesting tidbits of information rabid fans will love, including finally revealing what he was listening to during the heartbreaking final take as Elio stares into the fire, moments after Oliver has admitted he is getting married. The song Chalamet listened to was, in fact, Sufjan Steven's "Visions of Gideon," which also accompanies the scene in the film.

"Sufjan's song was playing in my ear so I could mirror the structure," Chalamet said. "It was bit of an acting experiment. I was grateful I had enough personal experiences to draw from. I don't wanna do that all the time... With the camera this close and the take being as long as it is — it felt like anything else would ring false. The camera was just in the fireplace. There wasn't anybody behind it."
