Call Me By Your Name

Beautiful film directed by  Luca Guadagnino and Brilliantly acted by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer. I was not aware that it is based on a book but will look up the book now and read it.  This movie is bound to become a classic and hope it wins at least Best Actor or Best Picture.  The movie is sensual and deals with first love and heartbreak.

Summary: “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 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 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”.



Richard Marx- Hold On To The Nights

I prefer his music from the 80’s and early 90’s but my favorite song will Always be Hold On to the Nights from 1988.  The lyrics are hauntingly beautiful, simple, concise and very Real.  I don’t think the song necessarily signifies two people married per say. It could also mean two people that are in love with each other but don’t know how to deal with those feelings and chemistry perhaps because of their youth or because life itself is pushing them in separate directions and deep down they want to be together and perhaps the choices they have to make is a limitation to that yearning of wanting to be with each other.


Just when I believed I couldn’t ever want for more

This ever changing world pushes me through another door
I saw you smile
And my mind could not erase the beauty of your face
Just for awhile
Won’t you let me shelter youHold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish that I could give you something more
That I could be yours
How do we explain something that took us by surprise
Promises in vain, love that is real but in disguise
What happens now
Do we break another rule
Let our lovers play the fool
I don’t know how
To stop feeling this way
Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish that I could give you something more
That I could be yours
Well, I think that I’ve been true to everybody else but me
And the way I feel about you makes my heart long to be free
Every time I look into your eyes, I’m helplessly aware
That the someone I’ve been searching for is right there
Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish that I could give you more
Hold on to the nights.
