Luca Guadagnino’s film adaptation of André Aciman’s 2007 coming-out and coming-of-age novel Call Me by Your Name is one of the most talked-about films of the year. The movie and the book have both become instant classics for their sensuous rendering of a young man’s sexual awakening during a summer in Italy. André talks to SBS’s Anton Enus how the book came to life and what it’s like to see your work adapted for the big screen.
