EEFF once again revisits the most beloved film of the past year for its big outdoors screening at Old Spitalfields Market. Equally melancholic and endearing, erotic and intellectual, the story of Elio (Timothee Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer) and their unexpected romance that blossoms over the summer of 1983 in idyllic Northern Italy, has stolen the hearts of thousands of viewers. Already iconic for its sensual portrayal of first love, its provocative yet honest approach of one’s sexual awakening (peach anyone?) and its liberating depiction of parenthood, Call Me By Your Name is indeed a modern masterpiece. Featuring one of the most heartfelt, career-defining performances of (dare we say) all time, by 22 year-old Chalamet, Call Me By Your Name is one of those films that haunts you and stays with you long after you first watch it. A film that is as difficult to get over as your first true love.
