Call Me By Your Name. Part of me doesn't want to let it go - I was here first, dammit! Or amongst the very first few, anyway - I did get the news from a couple of other sources, but I kept on it and kept on it, well before any of the bigt movie trades had even announced the film - collecting all the behind-the-scenes pictures and getting everybody to go out and read Andre Acimen's wonderful book.
review in The Hollywood Reporter:
"Starring a never-more-sensual Armie Hammer as the intern, the breathtaking Timothee Chalamet (formerly of Homeland) as the son and the great Michael Stuhlbarg as the father, this tender and minutely observed queer romance, set in bucolic Lombardy (changed from the Ligurian seaside in the novel), could, with the right marketing, become a breakout title for Sony Pictures Classics."
If you read the reviews around Stuhlbarg's got a big scene towards the end of the film that is getting a lot of attention, which translates to me that Guadagnino nailed the book, because that scene in the book is what made the book for me, and if he got that right then he got it all right. All of it! Peach be damned, it is about that scene. Way back in July talking about Stuhlbarg in this role I said:
"I'm especially excited that he was cast to play the main character's father in Luca Guadangino's upcoming film Call Me By Your Name -- there's an absolutely killer scene for his character towards the end of the book that, if the movie works, will be extraordinarily moving; hell it could even be an Oscar clip."
