Set during an idyllic ‘80s Italian summer, the heartrending coming-of-age film Call Me By Your Name has left millions overwhelmed. Based on the novel by André Aciman, directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by James Ivory, it has received awards for Best Adapted Screenplay from the Academy, BAFTA, Writers Guild, and Critics’ Choice.
The story centers around two young men falling in love but explores so much more. It is a story about first love, lust, innocence, and loss. The film stars Timothée Chalamet as Elio, a precocious 17-year-old whose world is forever changed when he meets a slightly older doctoral student, Oliver (played by Armie Hammer). Twenty-two-year-old Chalamet received rave reviews and industry accolades for his outstanding performance, winning the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead and the Gotham Independent Film Award for Breakthrough Actor.
This critically acclaimed film had an all-too-brief, limited commercial run in the Philippines. That is why CC:Concepts is excited to offer an opportunity for audiences to enjoy this cinematic masterpiece by presenting Call Me By Your Name In Concert with The Manila Symphony Orchestra on the 28th of October, 8PM at Samsung Hall, SM Aura.
