Call Me By Your Name Trailer

While plenty of our favorite films from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival have been hitting theaters over the summer, from the odd but charming Brigsby Bear to the breakout indie hit The Big Sick, there are still a few that have been held back from release. One of those movies is a wonderful coming-of-age romance set in Italy in 1983, and the first trailer has finally arrived.

Call Me By Your Name focuses on a 17-year old boy named Elio (Timothée Chalamet) spending the summer in his family’s villa, spending his time playing classical music, reading, swimming or flirting with his friend Marzia. But when a handsome, charming 24-year old American doctoral student named Oliver (Armie Hammer) moves into the house as an intern for Elio’s professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg), his fascination with the twentysomething man leads him to a personal discovery that will change his life forever.
