The Queer Music Club series has been so much fun and I decided to start a similar series with queer films. If you’ve stalked my social media accounts enough (and why shouldn’t you?) you may know that I actually have a background in film. For the first installment, I’ve chosen this year’s most buzzed-about film Call Me By Your Name.
Title: Call Me By Your Name
Directed by: Luca Guadagnino
Starring: Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet
Synopsis: It’s Italy in the summer of 1983, and 17 year old Elio meets his college professor father’s newest intern, the PhD student Oliver. The two soon develop an intense relationship that will forever change their lives.
Standouts scenes: An outdoor dance party where Oliver shows off some wicked mom dance moves. Plus, a curious exploration of an apricot. Elio’s supportive relationship with his parents.
Why you should watch it: Every homosexual in these United States is talking about it.
Where you can see it: Currently in theaters
