Elio and Oliver are back! That’s right, your favorite 1980s will-they-won’t-they couple of sun-drenched Italian summer fame return to the silver screen—and this time, with a live score.
For a special presentation of Call Me By Your Name at Davies Symphony Hall on June 18, the SF Symphony performs Sufjan Stevens’ sumptuous score live. It’s a fitting complement—a full orchestra, that is—to the opulence and warmth depicted in the film, which is, at its core, a heartfelt coming-of-age story (that just happened to launch a million fan sites about Timothée Chalamet).
(If you have no idea what I’m talking about, perhaps it’s time to see this dang thing, which won James Ivory a best adapted screenplay Oscar at the 2018 awards.)
Tickets are already on sale, ranging in price from $35 to $155, depending on your seat. So why wait at home, crying into your crackling fireplace, when you can relive someone else’s first love?
In the meantime, may I highly recommend the audiobook of André Aciman’s novel, upon which Luca Guadagnino's film is based. It's narrated by Armie Hammer. I don't think I need to say more.
