This has been a really rough week. If you’re anything like me, you’re looking for any pick-me-up you can find. There’s a good chance Armie Hammer dancing his heart out in Call Me By Your Name will do just that. Today is National Coming Out Day, and to commemorate the important occasion, the film’s Twitter account released this charming clip.
Check it out:
By all accounts, this film is excellent. I’ve been trying to remain relatively unspoiled for it, but this clip is just too good not to watch.
Here’s a synopsis, if you’re so curious:
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows wit h natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
Call Me By Your Name hits theaters November 24th, 2017.
