Call Me by Your Name

Call Me By Your Name

February’s Volunteer of the Month is the awesome Joey Barrera, who has chosen Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name as her volunteer pick of the month!

Elio (Timothee Chalamet) is an American boy living in a rural area of Italy with his father. He passes his time reading and hanging out with his girlfriend. Elio’s quiet existence is interrupted, however, by the arrival of Oliver, a grad student who comes to study with his father and stay at their home. Annoyed at first by Oliver’s presence, Elio starts to find himself irresistibly drawn to him.

Acclaimed by critics upon its release, Call Me by Your Name was selected by the National Board of Review as one of the top 10 films of 2018.

“The film is beautifully shot and the performances are outstanding.” – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

“A timeless and sumptuous tale of the rarity and fullness of love.” – Aly Caviness, Midwest Film Journal
