Sundance ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Press

Timothée attended the “Call Me By Your Name” premiere and various other events at Sundance. You can see them all in the gallery.


You can also see a short interview from the premiere and the Q&A in the following videos.



Variety and The Hollywood Reporter reviewed the film, singling out Timothée as a rising star. Some excerpts:

Meanwhile, relative newcomer Chalamet combines the intellectual precocity and hot-blooded animal energy of a young Louis Garrel, circa “the Dreamers,” distinguishing himself via the character’s mastery of three languages (English, French, and Italian) and two musical instruments (guitar and piano).

Though Hammer might be the bigger star and he certainly has a juicier-than-usual role here that he clearly relishes, the true breakout of the film is 21-year-old Chalamet. Elio is someone who is experiencing a lot of things for the first time, for which he barely has any words, but Chalamet’s face and body language turn his character into an open book. The minutes-long and wordless final shot, another rare close-up of Elio, is so mesmerizing that it immediately cements his status as one of the world’s brightest young talents. The chemistry between the men is palpable, but what’s more important, they convey their character’ complex emotions, expectations and thoughts without necessarily opening their mouths.

Movie news

First off, according to Variety, the distribution rights for Timothée’s upcoming Sundance flick, “Call Me By Your Name”, have already been sold to Sony Pictures Classics.

One of the buzziest titles to debut at this month’s Sundance Film Festival is already off the market. “Call Me By Your Name,” a gay love story in the tradition of “Brokeback Mountain,” has sold to Sony Pictures Classics, Variety has learned.

The deal for worldwide rights, estimated to be north of $6 million, was struck after several buyers expressed serious interest. The movie will debut in the upcoming Park City festival’s Premieres section.

“Call Me By Your Name,” adapted from the 2007 novel by Andre Aciman, follows an affair after a chance meeting in 1980s Italy between a 17-year-old boy (Timothee Chalamet from “Homeland”) and a twentysomething man (Armie Hammer). It’s not clear what the movie will be rated, but the book involves a sexually explicit act with a peach and other charged moments.

Secondly, the first still from “Hot Summer Nights” is out and you can see it in the gallery.
