Telluride Film Festival – ‘Hostiles’ and ‘Lady Bird’

The first still from ‘Hostiles’ featuring Timothée has been released (even though he’s quite blurred) and you can see that in the gallery. ‘Lady Bird’ was also screened at Telluride yesterday and you can read a short snippet about Timothée below and the full review over at IndieWire.

In the meantime, Lady Bird’s enduring the more pressing challenges of amateur high school plays and ramshackle romances, pivoting between ill-advised romances with the good-natured Danny (Lucas Hedges) and chic rocker Kyle (Timothée Chalamet, a world apart from the gay teen in “Call Me By Your Name”).

Added The Wrap’s photoshoot to the gallery. And you can also read some more glowing reviews for Timothée in “Call Me By YOur Name” below.

Vanity Fair

A 21-year-old La Guardia alum, Chalamet has the bearing of a natural; he’s deeply committed to his character but also infuses Elio with something of himself, too, as the best movie stars do. Chalamet seems to know that he’s got an innate charm, a boyish grace, and he uses that to striking effect. Elio, soulful and impetuous and a little bratty, is a kid you’ve known, a kid you wanted to be, a kid you care and root for. It’s a mature and thoughtful performance, and it augurs great things for Chalamet going forward. Hell, the tremendous extended final shot of the film would be an acting opus for someone twice or three times his age. Call Me by Your Name is not Chalamet’s first piece of work (watch Miss Stevens on Netflix), but it feels in every sense like a grand debut.

The Playlist

It’s truly hard to put into words what a revelation Chalamet is as Elio. The 21-year-old actor is naturally charismatic, but how he communicates Elio’s emotions throughout the picture is simply breathtaking. Even when he’s depicting Elio’s inevitable moments of teenage angst there it’s never false or mannered. He’s a rock of naturalism on Guadagnino’s gorgeous canvas.

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.
