You’d think that after watching this so many times I’d stop crying by the end of it but I feel even more emotional after every rewatch. I love this movie more than anything.
It received the longest standing ovation in NYFF history, so that should give you an idea on how perfect this film is. I also got to see Luca Guadagnino, Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, and André Aciman in the flesh and got to ask Luca a question, which was absolutely surreal. I'm so lucky that this was the first movie I've seen at the first film festival I've ever attended; I'm truly never gonna forget the experience of it…
