It's the summer of 1983 in Italy, and Elio, a precocious 17-year-old, spends his days in his family's villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading and flirting with his friend Marzia. One day, Oliver, a charming American scholar arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father, an eminent professor. Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.

Both my wife and I enjoyed the honesty of this movie and the leading character is brilliantly played by the youngster. You could feel for his pain and emotional entanglement. You come to realize that gay relationship is as real and valid as heterosexual. I recommend parents whose children are in a same sex relationship but difficult to accept to watch this movie,,, to find the humanity in this film. Well done!
The theme song sounds great too!

A beautiful story of first love and coming of age. The film is slow-paced and detail oriented in a way completely suited to its setting, and is saturated with music in a way that I love. It was wonderful and refreshing to watch a film in which a young gay man is supported and encouraged by his parents, and in which his love story is not a tragedy, but an honest account of first love in all of its intensity.

A very touching, emotional love story. It's nice to see a gay love story that doesn't end tragically. So tired of watching films with gay characters that are killed off. I guess Hollywood thinks in order for the audience to tolerate a gay character they need to kill them off to evoke compassion. All in all, well done!

I loved that this was a love story that began and ended and no without too much peril...no one died and the emotional honesty drove the story.

I think this is the most beautiful love story yet..I love the movie ,the ending made me cry though. I expect the sequel to make up for the sad ending it was beautiful and well acted over all (Oliver) Armie Hammer and (Elio) Timothée Chalamet also had very powerful chemistry I highly recommend people watch the movie! It was the most passionate flick I've ever seen.

Rather boring. Not really interesting until the last 5-10 mins. of the movie.

My name or yours? elio + vr = oliver. He came/saw/conquered and left.... A summer fling for the older-young man and a devastating heart-ache for the teenager. Yet another 'poignant' coming-of-age story, and a coming-out of sorts for Italian/Algerian director Luca Guadagnino. NOT a fan of his I am Love (visually lush but sterile) nor Bigger Splash (a remake of La Piscine with Delon/Schneider/Ronet/Birkin now with Ralph Fiennes et.al.). James Ivory could not quite save the script; read book by Aciman and thought it was better. For a more mature Ivory adaptation (his first after Merchant's passing) of a real story, check out Sir Anthony Hopkins kissing his Japanese 'adopted' son/lover in The City of Your Final Destination.

This film played like a memory. A memory of falling in love for the first time in sun drenched Northern Italy. Beautiful, supremely well acted. Makes you wish that all parents would be so accepting of their children. Timothee Chalamet is a revelation and watching his subtle performance makes you realize you're watching the acting discovery of the decade. He should have won the Oscar for Best Actor over a shouting, hammy, fat-suited Oldman.
