Call Me By Your Name. Trailer. Timothée Chalamet. Armie Hammer. Esther Garrel. Michael Stuhlbarg. Amira Casar.

It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman [Timothée 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 wit h 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.

A Bigger Splash. Trailer. Dakota Johnson. Ralph Fiennes. Matthias Schoenaerts. Tilda Swinton.

In A BIGGER SPLASH, the lives of a high profile couple, a famous rock star and a filmmaker — [Matthias Schoenaerts and Tilda Swinton] vacationing and recovering on the idyllic sun-drenched and remote Italian island of Pantelleria are disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter [Ralph Fiennes and Dakota Johnson] — creating a whirlwind of jealousy, passion and, ultimately, danger for everyone involved.

In A BIGGER SPLASH, rock legend Marianne Lane [Tilda Swinton] is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul [Matthias Schoenaerts] when iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry [Ralph Fiennes] unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope [Dakota Johnson] and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue. A BIGGER SPLASH is a sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy and rock and roll, under the Mediterranean sun.
