“The setting is gorgeously specific - summer, northern Italy, early 1980s - but the agony and ecstasy of young love are universal in this intoxicating coming-of-age drama. Seventeen-year-old Elio, the precocious only child of an American professor and a chic continental mother, whiles away the endless afternoons as teenagers (or at least soigné European ones) do: playing Bach variations on the piano, reading battered hardbacks by the pool, loitering in the town square or cooling off in the river. So the arrival of grad student Oliver registers as a near-seismic event. A handsome cipher with a face and body uncannily like one of the Roman statues Elio’s father rhapsodizes over in his studies, Oliver proves to be a heedless, half-absent sort of houseguest... But as Elio and Oliver slowly begin to draw each other out, a tentative friendship forms, and a powerful attraction... The narrative casts a sort of languorous spell, capturing the unhurried sun-drunk rhythm of Elio’s days as his crush evolves from intriguing distraction to full-blown obsession... Guadagnino is as lavish with his visual gifts as he’s ever been... But there’s a new kind of empathy here - one that allows the winsome Chalamet to shine and pulls surprising new depths from Hammer, an actor whose serene symmetry finally cracks open to reveal the remarkably flawed and feeling human being beneath. The small miracle of the movie isn’t just that it tells a gay love story with such unreserved tenderness, but that it makes the fate of a romance not meant to last feel like much more than exquisitely framed filmmaking. It’s real life, heartbreaking and sublime.” - Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
