Rotten Tomatoes rating: 95%
In Northern Italy in the summer of 1983, 17-year-old Elio spends his days in his parents’ villa transcribing music, reading, swimming in the sea and playing the piano. He’s happy enough, until an American called Oliver arrives to spend the summer as Elio’s father’s intern.
Oliver’s arrival throws everything that Elio knows about himself and about love into upheaval, and as the days pass, he and Oliver discover an awakening desire that will change both their lives forever.
The winner of the Oscar and the BAFTA for the best adapted screenplay, this stunning movie is based on the acclaimed novel by Andre Aciman.
The Detroit News says, “This coming-of-age love story is all texture, tone and nuance…Luca Guadagnino has made a lovely cinematic feather. And it floats down beautifully, riding a soft breeze of melancholy and grace.”
