Yeah that blurb really rubs me the wrong way, especially considering it is supposed to be them recommending it.

People is another right-wing rag.

A real feel-good movie.

Am I the only one who isn't reading it that way?

Is it supposed to make it better that Willam says he fucked guys at eleven? There is no way to make this movie seem better.

It is an ephebophile movie. A movie about a post adolescent boy.

There is a noticeable discomfort arising as the film gets more prominence in the year end awards.

I still can't get over the fact that Armie's character is supposed to be 24 fucking years old. They should've at least tacked on 4 more years for the movie version and made him a doctoral student or something.

Considering that it's People magazine, the morons who read that rag regularly, most likely aren't going to see Call Me anyway.

replies 9Dec 7, 2017 6:18 PM +00:00

The character is a doctoral student, 24 is a normal age for a doctoral student.

(But yes, Armie does not look 24, but the director was set on him)

Someone needs to tell People the movie is fantasy, not reality. If they can't tell the difference, they shouldn't be reviewing movies.

What's the big deal about a 17 year old and a 24 year old?

replies 12Dec 7, 2017 6:46 PM +00:00

Looks more like a 40 year old with a 16 year old.

Some of the commenters on Deadline the other day were joking about Armie's next project being a Broadway play called "Straight White Men," saying he must be trying to distance himself from this film. That could very well be true, but I still think this will be a major contender come Oscar season. It's already doing quite well on year-end lists and at some of the pre-Oscar awards.

People magazine is an empty piece of shallow fluff. Haven't read it in years.

It could be the most romantic and wonderful love story of all time, but the current sociopolitical background is not favorable.

Hammer is too old for it not to appear as an old man having sex with a teenager.

They also could’ve cast someone older looking than Timothee. But I doubt it’s coincidental. The director knew what he was doing.

replies 17Dec 7, 2017 7:38 PM +00:00

I wanna see this film and I dont think its pandering to pedophiles.

Next year Columbia has a movie coming out called White Boy Rick about a teenage boy who made money in the 1980s by selling drugs.

replies 19Dec 7, 2017 8:55 PM +00:00

A beautiful film for beautiful people.

The director knew what he was doing.

Of course, Timothée Chalamet as Elio is a perfect casting.

replies 20Dec 7, 2017 9:17 PM +00:00

Right, so he clearly wanted this age gap dynamic.
