Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★★½

"You're too smart not to know how rare, how special, what you two had was."

I really didn't think I would enjoy Call Me By Your Name as much as I did. It just goes to show, much like last year's Moonlight, that love stories (no matter the circumstance) share a universal theme that anyone can relate to. If I could sum this film up in one word I would say it's poetic. Every scene is beautifully shot and choreographed. Hopefully with the successes of Call Me By Your Name and Moonlight there will be a period in film history we can refer to as the coming of age renaissance because I support it.  The last shot of Elio staring into the fireplace was breathtaking and it was a perfectly somber wrap to a near perfect film.
