1983, summer in northern Italy. Elio Perlman (Chalamet), a precocious 17-year-old American-Italian, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music. Oliver (Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father (Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor. As they get closer, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
Based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman, this is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love.

“A masterful work” ★★★★★ The Guardian
