Watch the dreamy trailer for Sundance darling Call Me by Your Name

Described as "lush," "dreamy," and "gorgeously sad," Call Me by Your Name has been one of the fall's most highly anticipated releases since it earned rave reviews at Berlinale and the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Based on André Aciman's book of the same name and with a script written by Academy Award-winning director James Ivory, the story follows teenage Elio (Timothée Chalamet), who is living in Italy's Lombardy region during the early 1980s, as he falls into a romance with Oliver (Armie Hammer), an American graduate student who is helping Elio's father with research.

"The beauty of the movie, and of Chalamet's performance, is that his blossoming sexuality unfolds naturally," The Ringer writes in its review. "Elio is toiling with something new and significant, and is certainly confused, but this is not a film about shame or self-torture. Their romance is a secret, but this is not a film about the closet."

Described as a "near-certain Oscar contender" by Vulture, Call Me by Your Name will hit theaters Nov. 24. Watch the stunning trailer below. Jeva Lange
