hmv.com talks to Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino

It may not be one of the more hyped films to arrive this year, but Luca Guadagnino's adaptation of André Aciman's novel Call Me By Your Name has been quietly flooring audiences since its premier at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is already being spoken of in hushed tones as a potential Best Picture winner at next year's Academy Awards.

Set in Italy over the summer of 1983, Guadagnino's film is a thoughtful and melancholy coming-of-age story starring Armie Hammer and breakout talent Timothée Chalamet, depicting the sexual awakening of a precociously talented 17-year old pianist who finds himself attracted to a young academic boarding with his parents over the summer.

Almost a decade in the making and a full nine months on from its premiere at Sundance, Call Me By Your Name arrives in cinemas on Friday (October 27) and ahead of its release we sat down with the director to talk about his new film.
