From Sony Pictures Classics comes one of the most acclaimed motion pictures of 2017, director Luca Guadagnino’s CALL ME BY YOUR NAME. Experience it at The Frida Cinema February 16-22; showtimes below.
Written by James Ivory and based on the 2007 novel of the same name by André Aciman, Call Me By Your Name takes place in Northern Italy in the summer of 1983. Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old American who is sophisticated and intellectual beyond his years, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). One day Oliver (Armie Hammer), a 24-year-old graduate student working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. During their summer together, Oliver and Elio strike a strong and surprisingly complex friendship, bonding over their shared Jewish heritage, the beguiling Italian landscape, and Elio’s own emerging sexuality.
A sumptuous work of art that has won over 40 international awards and received over 100 nominations, and recently named Movie of the Year by the 2018 AFI Awards, Call Me By Your Name is an unforgettable coming-of-age film brimming with all the visual splendour, passion, and emotional complexity that have been the benchmark of masters Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) and Ivory (Howard’s End, Maurice, A Room with a View).

“Rating: 4/4. One of the very best films of the year. Guadagnino, a master cinema sensualist, and his award-caliber actors Chalamet, Hammer and Stuhlbarg create a love story for the ages and a new film classic. Let it in.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“First love is as much about hesitancy as it is about exuberance, and Ivory and Guadagnino perfectly capture that sweet turmoil. This isn’t just an instant LGBT classic; this is one of the great movie love stories, for audiences of all stripes.” – Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
“A complicated movie, erotic yet never graphic, heartfelt yet highly stylized. Chalamet delivers one of the year’s best performances.” – Rafer Guzman, Newsday
“Even as he beguiles us with mystery, Guadagnino recreates Elio’s life-changing summer with such intensity that we might as well be experiencing it first-hand.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
