Call Me by Your Name gets a gorgeous trailer

Little White Lies

It’s here – the trailer to one of the best films we’ve seen in 2017. In fact, if there’s a better film to come out before the year’s end, then this will truly have been a vintage crop. Director Luca Guadagnino follows up A Bigger Splash with something a little different, a supremely atmospheric and emotional love story set in northern Italy during the early ’80s.

It stars Armie Hammer as a philosophy/linguistics academic who takes a summer internship with a professor (Michael Stuhlbarg) and ends up forming a fast friendship with Elio, the professor’s son. With an extraordinary script by James Ivory, adapted from André Aciman’s 2007 novel and incredible deployment of Sufjan Stevens’ music on the soundtrack, you should really believe the hype, and then some.

Call Me by Your Name is released in UK cinemas on 27 October.
