Call Me By Your Name: Beautiful Setting & LGBT Representation

Call Me By Your Name: Beautiful Setting & LGBT Representation

It’s not often that I go and see a film that I know absolutely nothing about, but when I saw that Call Me By Your Name had been nominated for various big awards (including Best Film, Best Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars), I wanted to see what the fuss was about. It came out a while ago but it was showing in my local theatre where they often show films that didn’t have a wide release, so I had to take the opportunity to see it!

I wasn’t sure at first what I’d think of it at first because I didn’t know anything about it, but I ended up really enjoying it! Here are my thoughts…

(a.k.a. What the Heck is CinemaScoop?)

CinemaScoop is a new series all about my opinions on this year's new cinema releases. I love films (I have a film degree!) so I can't wait to get started!

I don’t like to set new year’s resolutions – I never have. They’re always just a little bit disappointing if you get halfway through the year and realise you haven’t started working towards one. That’s why I skip that disappointment completely by not setting any!

However, this year, I did set one goal: to go to the cinema more often. It doesn’t seem like a huge deal, but far too often I find myself too wrapped up in everyday life that I forget to have hobbies. I adore going to the cinema and last year, I felt disappointed that I missed out on so many films because I hardly ever went. This year, I want to change that.

That’s where CinemaScoop comes in.
