Call Me By Your Name, the... do I really have to keep describing the movie as "Luca Guadagnino's adaptation of Andre Acimen's book telling a gay coming of age story starring Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet" at this point? We all know by now, right? I have to double and triple check Guadagnino and Chalamet's names every time I type all of that out, it's exhausting. Anyway... like I was saying, thanks!
A couple of you had questions yesterday when we posted about the film's extremely positive word-of-mouth out of Sundance -- namely regarding a release date, and nudity. (Sidenote: You are my kinda people.) And I have noncommittal answers! As for the first I have heard a couple of different things regarding dates - the soonest I have heard is the end of summer, and the latest I have heard is December. Let's hope summer stands because this is totally a Summer Movie.
Regarding nudity, well I have heard a little bit about this but I kind of hate having a surgeon's precise knowledge about who shows what beforehand - and anyway a movie can be seriously sexy without showing all the bits and pieces, if you ask me. Don't come at me for being prudish either - I mean, really, don't you know where you are? - but it always seems like some people won't go see a movie if there aren't dicks falling from the sky, and I've never gotten that mind-set. Anyway from what I have heard the movie plays the organs coyly but there's plenty of sweaty flesh. I'm not worried, personally.

And down below Luca talks about "The Peach Scene," as it's known to readers and as it will go down in history among anyone who watches the movie. Again I implore all of you to read the book though, before learning too much about the story and the movie. And sorry I can't seem to make the video-player bigger.
