Chalamet plays Elio in the movie, set in 1983, a 17-year-old who falls in love with his dad's research assistant (Hammer), who comes to stay with them at their house in Italy.

Chalamet is already receiving awards for his performance in the movie. On Nov. 27, he received the Gotham Independent Film Award for Breakthrough Actor.
