Blu-ray Review: Call Me By Your Name

March 13, 2018

By John Corrado

Fresh off of winning Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars, Luca Gaudagnino’s Italy-set romance Call Me By Your Name is now available on Blu-ray.  The film charts the relationship between the 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and 24-year-old grad student Oliver (Armie Hammer), whom his father (Michael Stuhlbarg) brings over to help with his work.

While adored by most critics, I had some problems with the age gap between the two main characters in the film, and found the whole thing to be a touch overrated.  But the performances are solid, and the film is beautifully shot, so there are still enough elements to make it worth seeing on Blu-ray.  For more on the film itself, you can read my full review of it right here.

The Blu-ray also includes a commentary track with Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg, as well as the solid production featurette Snapshots of Italy: The Making of Call Me By Your Name, the Q&A-style piece In Conversation With Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg and Luca Gaudagnino which was recorded at a film festival, and a music video for the Oscar-nominated Sufjan Stevens song “Mystery of Love.”

Call Me By Your Name is a Sony Pictures Classics release.  It’s 132 minutes and rated 14A.
