Film Lovers in Carroll County (FLICC) has chosen the 2017 film “Call Me By Your Name” to be screened at the Carroll Arts Center on Friday, June 15 at 1 pm & 7:30 pm. In 1980s Italy, a summer romance blossoms between a 17-year-old boy and the older man hired as his father’s research assistant.
In the summer of 1983, in the north of Italy, Elio Perlman, (Timothée Chalamet) a 17-year-old American spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). One day Oliver (Armie Hammer), a 24-year-old graduate student working on his doctorate arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of their surroundings, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever. Directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by James Ivory, “Call Me By Your Name” is based on the novel by André Aciman. In March 2018, the film won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and was nominated for Best Actor (Timothée Chalamet) and Best Motion Picture.
