Episode 47: Luca Guadagnino's 'Call Me By Your Name' (2017)

Episode Summary

In this episode, I talk about Luca Guadagnino's 2017 film "Call Me By Your Name." In 2017, I read Andre Aciman's book by the same title in one sitting. I was consumed by the story of 17-year-old Elio and 24-year-old Oliver who fall in love one summer in Italy in 1983. The film is beautiful, and I loved it. This episode was recorded immediately after I finished the film because I wanted to capture all my thoughts and feelings in that moment of afterglow and elation. I talk about many things, including the sensuality of the film, why I connect to Elio, why I'm moved by Elio's relationship with his father, and much more. Note: Spoilers abound!
