A charming story, tastefully played out in a lovely setting by talented actors who are masterfully directed by Luca Guadagnino. Absolute quality in every detail. The coming-of-age elements, the sexual discovery, the moving father/son dialogue after Oliver departs, all written to perfection. André Aciman's novel was brought to life with a sensitively written screenplay, and skillful cinematography and editing.
And then there's Timothée Chalamet as Elio. 19 years old at the time of filming, his maturity and talent as an actor exceeded that of his co-stars, every one as brilliant and faultless as they were. Special mentions to Michael Stuhlbarg and Armie Hammer. Bravo Luca Guadagnino.
