Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. During the restless summer weeks, unrelenting but buried currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them and verge toward the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

After reading this Book, there is not one movie in my life that I have been so looking forward to seeing. It almost hurts that I will have to wait so many months to see what I read and what I found myself falling into. Falling within those written words as if falling into water, to just be immersed within it. The way I pictured the Story, the scenery within my thoughts, was like a beautiful painting that just brings you a sense of peacefulness a story unfolding like clouds gently moving within the blue sky.
This Book left me wrapped up in a blanket of sadness, sorrow and I found myself haunted by how it ended. I desperately was hoping for the cliché ending. I just wanted for them to stay as one, and have the fairy tale ending I was so longing for. I now carry with me sadness that I wish not to feel, I have never read a book that brought me to tears. I don't read often, but I wish I could find more beautiful books like this one before they most often end up as a great movie.
I think the casting was brilliantly done, and I just know that this movie will do justice to the novel(from the reviews I read that made me go for the book). Knowing the actors who play Elio and Oliver, I could not picture anyone else in my mind as the story was unfolding within my gaze that laid upon the pages. I will definitely support This Movie in many ways that I can, I can not wait to see how Armie will bring Oliver to life.
Beautiful within its sadness
