Ayala Malls Cinemas Showcases CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Starting January 31, 2018

Sony Pictures Classics' "Call Me By Your Name" has been hailed as the Best Picture of 2017 by the L.A. Film Critics and has garnered several major Oscar nominations (Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Actor). While the film has already been shown locally before, it had very limited releases (shown in advanced sneak previews last week and during the Cinema One Originals event last year) so only a very select group of people has seen and experience the film. Don't fret though as local audiences will finally get a chance to experience the film in a more wider release as Ayala Malls Cinemas across the nation starting January 31, 2018. Even better, the film will be Rated R-16 with No Cuts by the MTRCB. For more details, you may visit www.sureseats.com for screening schedules and advance ticket sales.

"Call Me By Your Name" is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. The coming-of-age drama stars Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet as two men who share a special kind of friendship. It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothee Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old young man, 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 24 year-old American college graduate student 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.

"Call Me By Your Name" is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
