Consensus: Call Me by Your Name offers a melancholy, powerfully affecting portrait of first love, empathetically acted by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer.

This coming-of-age love story is all texture, tone and nuance...Luca Guadagnino has made a lovely cinematic feather. And it floats down beautifully, riding a soft breeze of melancholy and grace.

Michael Stuhlbarg gives a strong supporting performance as Elio's compassionate father and Hammer is very well-cast, but Chalamet owns the film with his passionate ambiguity.

Call Me by Your Name is a movie about two people falling in love. It's the kind of movie that's deceptively simple, but one that lingers. In other words, it's the best kind of movie.
