Call Me By Your Name is a gay love story directed by Luca Guadagnino based on Andre Aciman’s novel of the same name. Set in 1983 in Northen Italy, the film stars Armie Hammer and Timothy Chalamet.
Call Me By Your Name will premiere at Sundance on January 22nd. No global release date has yet been announced, but Sony Pictures Classics has already acquired the worldwide rights.
