One of the buzziest titles to debut at this month’s Sundance Film Festival is already off the market. “Call Me By Your Name,” a love story in the tradition of “Brokeback Mountain,” has sold to Sony Pictures Classics, Variety has learned.

The deal for worldwide rights, estimated to be north of $6 million, was struck after several buyers expressed serious interest. The movie will debut in the upcoming festival’s Premieres section.

“Call Me By Your Name,” adapted from the beloved 2007 novel by Andre Aciman, follows an affair that spans 20 years after a chance meeting in 1980s Italy between a 17-year-old boy (Timothee Chalamet from “Homeland”) and a twentysomething man (Armie Hammer). It’s not clear what the movie will be rated, but the book involves a sexually explicit act with a peach and other charged moments.

 

And yes, the movie will keep that infamous peach scene. :jonny:

First look at the movie: 

 

 

I...AM... PERCHED! :duca:

FANTASTIC book. 

 

But of course the basic ATRL girls were only talking about the damn peach scene. 

 

Can't wait to see what they did with the material :alexz:

Yes but I don't remember the name of the town or If It was even named in the book.

i believe it's alluded to in the book, but i heard they changed the location in the movie (still Italy, just not the same place).  Unsurprisingly, a small part of the book is set in Rome.

Why are all those gay movies' plots always low-key similar, though?

I really need to read It again before It see the movie. I remember It's warm language. I felt so melancholic yet very happy while reading It.

Excited, everything I've read from THR say critics have been raving about it :celestial4:

 

Though, I doubt it'll have mainstream crossover appeal like Brokeback Mountain or Moonlight.
