André Aciman talks Call Me By Your Name
A huge congratulations to André Aciman on the release of the film, Call Me By Your Name adapted from his 2007 novel. The film, directed by Luca Guadagnino has come out to rave reviews. Last Tuesday André and Luca sat down together at the New York Public Library to discuss the collaboration and transcribing the book into a movie. The hour long discussion covers the process of how the film came to be, what was retained from the novel and what was changed for screen, and the casting of the film. The talk is charming and delivers a lot of interesting insight into the personal impetus behind the novel.
