Synopsis

It’s the summer of 1983, in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman, a 17-year-old American-Italian boy spends his days in his family's 17th century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia. One day Oliver, a charming, 24-year-old American scholar working on his doctorate arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father, an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. Amidst the sun-drenched splendor of this sensual setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
