In the summer of 1983, in the north of Italy, Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old American spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). One day Oliver (Armie Hammer), a 24-year-old graduate student working on his doctorate arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. Soon, Elio and Oliver discover a summer that will alter their lives forever.

Showings of this film are part of our Cinematheque season which is supported by the British Film Institute.

This priority is often overlooked, but pure sensual pleasure is an important part of cinema. So it’s a thrill to see a really outstanding film which provides it, as well as being itself about sensual pleasure – about the desire that precedes it, about an ecstatic submission to love, about the intelligent cultivation of all these things. It is a story of a passionate affair between an older and younger man and reaches out to anyone with a pulse.”  The Guardian

“The film’s great accomplishment is how it manages to make us feel the emotions portrayed: infatuation, lust and being happy just by being around a special someone. It also transcends the essence of a gay movie; its central theme could be about any relationship.”  Urban Cinefile

“It’s an incomparably lovely period romance, as warm and therapeutic as the sunlight that suffuses every frame.”  The Telegraph
