It's the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, where 17-year-old Elio spends his days in his family's villa playing classical music, reading and flirting with his friend Marzia. With academics for parents—his father is an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, his mother Annella a translator—Elio is a precocious sort. But if he has the intellectual maturity of an adult, there is nevertheless much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly when it comes to matters of the heart.

Enter Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American doctoral candidate hired as a summer intern for Elio's father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio discovers the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a season that will alter his life forever.

Based on an acclaimed novel, the screenplay for this sensual and transcendent coming-of-age tale from Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino was penned by none other than that master of exquisite longing, James Ivory (A Room With a View, The Remains of the Day).
