Trailer: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Woos Cinephiles
The first trailer to this year’s Sundance sensation debuts online.
After much anticipation and online fanfare, Sony Pictures Classics released the first trailer to the coming of age drama “Call Me By Your Name.” Directed by Luca Guadagnino (“A Bigger Splash,” “I Am Love”), the gay romance set in 1980’s Italy stars Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, and Michael Stuhlbarg. I had the pleasure to watch this poignant, tender, and soul stirring movie at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The emotionally resonate drama is a masterpiece of romantic cinema for viewers regardless of their sexual orientation.
After watching the trailer, I was reminded why I fell in love with this movie back in January. The beautiful locations, the somber moments, meaningful dialogue, and solid acting are on display. It was refreshing to hear the new “Mystery of Love” by indie musician Sufjan Stevens. Many movie writers and Oscar bloggers say that “Call Me By Your Name” will be a serious contender for this year’s Academy Awards in multiple categories including acting, writing, directing, etc. The trailer affirms their predictions that another gay romance will be a likely Oscar player during this awards season.
