It’s the summer of 1983 in northern Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family's seventeenth century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia.
One day Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming, 24-year-old American scholar 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.
Amid the sun drenched splendour of this sensual setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will change their lives forever.
Q&A screening: To celebrate Call Me By Your Name's four BAFTA nominations for best film, director, leading actor and adapted screenplay, director Luca Guadagnino and star Timothée Chalamet join us at Curzon Soho, where the film has had an astonishing run, to discuss the film. Saturday 27 January 2.40pm.
