wow. this movie drew me into it more and more as the movie went on. very mesmerizing. I related so much to the feelings of Elio (Timothee Chalamet) and felt for him. Timothee Chalamet; what an amazing young star! He made the movie. His acting skills, pouring out in body language and facial expressions were amazing! And even though I don't like movies with sad endings, this movie's ending was so real. I cried, when Elio cried. I felt his loss, the feeling of hopelessness, the feeling of what is lost forever, a feeling that I can relate to in my life. Very realistic, since I have been there myself. A great story. Absorbing. There were some very erotic sexual scenes in the movie. I was surprised, that a movie like this, nominated for academy awards, would have such sensual scenes. I rate this movie 6 out of 5 stars. highly recommended! The movie was nominated for several awards, and won several awards, and rightfully so.
