Call Me By Your Name, the movie, is based on a 2007 book of the same name by Andre Aciman. The movie is set in 1983 in a remote Italian village and explores the sexuality of a 17-year-old Elio Perlman (Timothee Chalamet). Elio is an introvert, an intense bibliophile and musician. His parents are played by Michael Stuhlbarg (who was also in The Post and The Shape of Water) and Amira Casar, both very supportive and loving of their son.
As a child, I always thought that the Oscars were awards given to the most boring films of the year. None of the Oscar-winning or even the nominated films were worth watching for entertainment, I felt. They are all so serious and unfunny all the time. The last thing any child needs in their life is a lack of fun.
