Call Me by Your Name
During the most idyllic Italian summer in the history of idyllic Italian summers, Elia (Timothée Chalamet) develops a crush on his dad’s new student intern, Oliver (Armie Hammer). Idle summer days turn into night frolics as the two spend more time together and fall in love. Elio’s lovelorn gaze recalls those butterfly feelings of first young love. This film truly asks the question: is it better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all? And by the way, the name of the song you’re sure to fall in love with is “Love My Way” by the Psychedelic Furs.
