Sex and the Single Boy

Timothée Chalamet has his way with Armie Hammer (and a piece of fruit) in Call Me by Your Name

MOVIES

IF YOU LEARN ONE NAME BEFORE AWARDS SEASON, MAKE IT TIMOTHÉE Chalamet. (Pronounce it the American way—his friends call him “Timmy.”) The 21-year-old had a breakout year, appearing in two of the most critically acclaimed films of 2017. He grabbed attention in Greta Gerwig’s debut film, Lady Bird, but it’s his role as the vulnerable Elio Perlman in Call Me by Your Name that could earn him serious hardware in the next two months. (He has been nominated for a Golden Globe and has already won the New York Film Critics Circle award for best actor.)

The film, a love story adapted from André Aciman’s 2007 novel of the same name, follows 17-year-old Elio as he falls in love with Oliver (Armie Hammer), the older American student studying with Elio’s professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg). A confident, intellectual kid who writes music, reads voraciously and speaks three languages, he is suddenly emotionally unmoored by his feelings for Oliver. The film takes place over a languid summer at the family’s vacation home in northern Italy, and, as directed by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash), the story ripens slowly and lusciously, like summer fruit.
