QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A 17-year-old finds himself falling for a twenty-something grad student who's come to live with his family in northern Italy over the summer of 1983.
PLOT:
It's the summer of 1983 and Elio Perlman (TIMOTHEE CHALAMET) is a 17-year-old living with his archaeologist dad (MICHAEL STUHLBARG) and mom, Annella (AMIRA CASAR), in northern Italy. The young man spends his warm summer days lounging by the pool or playing the piano while his summer nights are filled with thoughts of taking his relationship with his girlfriend, Marzia (ESTHER GARREL), to the next level.

Joining the family for part of the summer is twenty-something grad student, Oliver (ARMIE HAMMER), who's going to help Mr. Perlman with his work and will be staying in Oliver's room with the teen relegated to another bedroom connected via a shared bathroom.

Despite both initially appearing straight, Elio and Oliver allow their platonic friendship to develop into flirting and then something more between them. All of which means their budding romance has a limited time to blossom and flourish with Oliver scheduled to leave before the end of summer.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
