Coming of Age Film "Call Me By Your Name" Will Release A Sequel This October!

If you loved "Call Me By Your Name" as the book and its eventual film, this sequel just may put you back in your feels. After garnering success in 2017 and 2018, such as winning 4 Oscars awards including "Best Picture", it made a lot of people want more. 

Well, you're in luck.

Already back last year, the author André Aciman hinted the want for a sequel to this book, in which he was also slowly writing it.

This sequel is entitled "Find Me".

Compared to its very erotic summer romance between 17-year-old Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) exploring his youth and sexuality, and 24-year-old graduate student Oliver (Armie Hammer) staying with Elio's family set in the 1980s, "Find Me" takes place years later when Elio's father, Sami, is a divorced man visiting Elio in Italy. If you remembered Elio's piano skills in the film, it actually led him to become a successful pianist. As for Oliver, he is a professor in northern New England with a family, and also the lingering feeling to visit Europe again.

From learning new things about love and intimacy, Aciman felt more attached to the world he made. Quoting him,

It [Call Me By Your Name] made me realize that I wanted to be back with them and watch them over the years — which is why I wrote Find Me.

"Find Me" will be published on October 29, 2019.
