Call Me By Your Name Release Plan

A Sony Pictures Classics Release

Call Me By Your Name

 "A Knockout! Casts a beautifully erotic, sensual spell." 
 – Chris Nashawaty, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY 

Synopsis

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman.

It's the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel).

Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio's sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart.

One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.

 "Ravishing filmmaking and piercing wisdom." 
 – Justin Chang, LOS ANGELES TIMES

Music

Daniel Pemberton an Ivor Novello winning and multi-Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated composer known for embracing a wide range of musical mediums, from electronic to orchestral. His unconventional and innovative approaching to scoring has captured the attention of not only some of the most legendary directors in the industry but also filmgoers and critics alike and has established him as one of the most versatile and exciting voices working in film today.

He has composed the scores to such major films as Danny Boyle’s STEVE JOBS (2015), Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR (2013), Aaron Sorkin’s MOLLYS GAME (2017), Guy Ritchie’s THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (2015) and KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD (2017), Nicole Garcia’s FROM THE LAND OF THE MOON (2016), and Stephen Gaghan’s GOLD (2016).

After more than a decade establishing himself as one of the most inventive and experimental voices in British television, Pemberton moved into the world of film with the period supernatural thriller The Awakening (2011). His hybrid choral, orchestral and electronic score caught the ear of Ridley Scott who hired the composer to score his feature THE COUNSELOR (2013). He collaborated again with Scott on the director’s first foray into television, “The Vatican” in 2014. He was named “Discovery Of The Year” at the World Soundtrack Awards in 2014 and nominated as “Film Composer Of The Year” in 2016.
