We all knew this love story would make it to the big screen, that it would be one of our favorites, and that it would become a classic among LGBT films because the theme focuses on something we all experienced for the first unforgettable time: love. Call Me by Your Name is currently out in theaters and it’s a masterpiece that you can’t miss!
The film is based on the original novel by author André Aciman, and when it was published in 2007, it became an immediate success. It was precisely that spark of genius that caught the eye of director, Luca Guadagnino. The plot is developed in Northern Italy and set in 1983. It tells the love story of a 17-year-old teenager, Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), and his father's handsome and charming assistant, Oliver (Armie Hammer).
