(UPDATED), 1st UPDATE. Music plays a huge role in Call Me by Your Name and in an upcoming Manila screening of the Oscar-winning film, it’ll play an even bigger one.
Yesterday, event organizer CC:Concepts announced that it will bring Call Me by Your Name back to Manila with a special screening that will be accompanied by a live orchestra.
The show will be on October 28, Sunday at the Samsung Hall in SM Aura and the movie’s soundtrack will be played by the Manila Symphony Orchestra.
Call Me by Your Name was first screened in the Philippines during last year’s Cinema One Originals film festival and got a nationwide release in January.
Based on the 2007 novel of the same name, the film is set in the 80s and tells the story of 17-year-old Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) and 24-year-old graduate student assistant Oliver (Armie Hammer) who find and fall in love with each other during a summer in Italy.
It was one of the buzziest films in the previous awards season, receiving four Oscar nominations including Best Original Song and winning one for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Tickets for the Call Me by Your Name film concert in Manila are available at SM Tickets.
