Watch: Armie Hammer seduces Timothee Chalamet in “Call Me By Your Name”

Based on André Aciman’s 2007 novel of the same name, Call Me By Your Name stars Armie Hammer as a 24-year-old American scholar who unwittingly falls in love with a precocious 17-year old boy (Timothee Chalamet).

The film was the talk of Sundance, as much for the chemistry between its two male stars as for its explicit sex scenes (one of which prominently features a split-open peach.)

Sony Pictures Classics has yet to set a release date for the film, but they’re wasting no time in drumming up interest by releasing snippets here and there.

Vanity Fair just posted a clip that finds the two men flirting at an afternoon volleyball game, and it’s worth a look if you want to see what all the fuss is about and get an overall sense of the vibe.

    I can’t wait to see the complete trailer. It got rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival.

  • ChrisK

    Actually Arnie is 30 yo. This film really does a great job perpetuation of the gay pedophile myth.

    • Tallskin

      Yeah and the younger actor is 20. The characters in the film are meant to be 17 and 22.

      No pedophilia there, unless you’re american of course, in which case you probably think both boys should be sent to prison

    • Brian

      “Actually”? The article is talking about the character, not the actor. …And the other actor is 21. So?

    • ChrisK

      Actually 24 and 17 and yes you’re right. Point taken.

    • Bryguyf69

      Actually, you’re perpetuating the “pedophilia MYTH.” At worst, this would be ephebophilia, not pedophilia. Pedophilia involves much younger targets, usually prepubescent or barely pubescent. When you get to high school age (around 15 to 19), it becomes ephebophilia. The distinction is important because the clinical and psychological manifestations are different, as are the legal ramifications.

  • Tallskin

    Actually, the film looks great. I am currently reading the novel, which, in the second third, is very erotic.

  • nitejonboy

    In all my 39 years, I’ve never heard of the term ” split open peach “, is that some term for butthole or something ?

  • ShowMeGuy

    That didn’t serve the film very well. A movie trailer should encourage you to want to see the film.
