The Italian filmmaker who first received international attention for 2010’s I Am Love with Tilda Swinton, tackles André Aciman’s novel, working from a script by James Ivory.
The actor breaks away from big studio fare to take on his most challenging and satisfying role in Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of André Aciman’s novel, as well as making his first foray on Broadway.
Two actors, one a respected veteran, the other a newcomer, not only star in Luda Guadagnino’s acclaimed drama, but also in Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird and more.
“James Ivory’s films are usually about the ways people deny the desires that define them, while Luca Guadagnino seems more interested by what happens when we surrender to them. It makes for a terrific collaboration,” writes Drew McWeeny.
Luca Guadagnino’s period drama was at the center of much buzz out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival with Armie Hammer getting much of the acclaim for his performance. It will open on November 24 after playing a number of fall festivals.
