A massive critical hit at the Sundance Film Festival, Call Me by Your Name is shaping up to be – easily – one of the most anticipated gay-themed movies of the year.
Lavishly directed by Luca Guadagnino, (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash, the upcoming Suspiria remake), Call Me By Your Namestars Armie Hammer as a 24-year-old student who visits Italy in the early 1980s and develops a relationship with a sensitive 17-year-old played by impressive up-and-comer Timothée Chalamet.
Center of My World, coming to DVD and Blu-ray in October, is shaping up to be on of the most colorful (and romantic) movies of the year. Filmed in Germany by director Jakob M. Erwa, this film stars strikingly handsome young blondie Louis Hofmann as Phil, a teen looking for any excuse to spend time away from his quirky family. The equally handsome Jannik Schumann proves to be the perfect distraction as Nicholas, the mysterious new kid at school who seems to return Phil’s longing glances.
A huge critical hit as this past year’s Sundance Film Festival, described by some critics as the British answer to Brokeback Mountain, God’s Own Country is coming to UK cinema screens in September. This debut feature from director Francis Lee is shaping up to one of the year’s best LGBTQ films. Starring Josh O’Connor (Cinderella, Florence Foster Jenkins) and Alec Secareanu (a relative newcomer in a breakout role), the film tells the story of a rural romance in the West Yorkshire countryside.
We’ll have to wait a little longer for it in the United States, where the film will be distributed by Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films. In the meantime, there is a new trailer to tide us over. Check it our below along with the official synopsis.
