Call Me by Your Name” (Replay)

The 2007 Andre Aciman novel Vs

the 2017 Luca Guadagnino Film

The Margos are feeling 80s and dreamy with this episode talking about Call Me by Your Name. The book came out in 2007 to quite a bit of acclaim for the American/Egyptian author Andre Aciman which tells the story of a 17-year-old Elio Perlman who meets and falls in love with 24-year-old Oliver during a stay in Italy in the summer of 1987.

Elio is open about his bisexuality and is immediately attracted to Oliver–to the point he can’t seem to focus on anything but their common Jewish ancestry and Oliver’s possible interest in him.

The film was adapted by Italian director Luca Guadagnino and the Margos compare and contrast between the book and movie.
