Armie Hammer (The Social Network, The Lone Ranger) finds himself involved in a tender love affair with a young man in the trailer for "Call Me By Your Name," the romantic coming-of-age drama that's based on Andre Aciman's acclaimed novel of the same name.

Set amidst an idyllic setting on the Italian Riviera, the film focuses on the secret gay romance that blossoms during a fateful summer between a precocious 17-year-old teen (played by Timothee Chalamet, from "Miss Stevens" and Showtime's "Homeland") and his father's 24-year-old house guest (Hammer).

Scoring rave reviews when it premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, "Call Me By Your Name" is the latest effort from acclaimed Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, I Am Love), who directed the movie from an adapted script he co-wrote with Oscar-nominated director James Ivory (Howards End, The Remains of the Day) and Italian film editor Walter Fasano.

Co-starring Michael Stuhlbarg (Arrival, TV's Fargo), the drama is set to screen next month at the Toronto International Film Festival before arriving in U.S. theaters on November 24th. In the meantime, you can watch the trailer above.

synopsis:
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by Andre Aciman.

It's the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothee Chalamet), a precocious 17-year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family's 17th-century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel).

Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart.

One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
