THIS year will go down in Aus­tralian cin­ema his­tory as the year that was book-ended with amaz­ing queer-themed films.

We kicked off this year on a high note with Best Pic­ture Os­car win­ner Moon­light, re­garded by many, as the year comes to a close, as one of the year’s very best.

It has some fierce compe­ti­tion with Call Me By Your Name.

Set in 1983, Call Me By Your Name is told from the point of view of 17-year-old Elio (Ti­mothée Cha­la­met), who lives in north­ern Italy with his mum (Amira Casar) and archaeology pro­fes­sor dad (Michael Stuhlbarg).

His dad usu­ally has a re­search as­sis­tant live with them while they work, but this par­tic­u­lar time it is hand­some and charm­ing Amer­i­can Oliver (Ar­mie Ham­mer).

Oliver at first shows Elio zero at­ten­tion and in­ter­est, but even­tu­ally that changes and the two be­gin a se­cret ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship.

There is some­thing deeply spe­cial about this film; it is han­dled with del­i­cacy, re­spect and pas­sion.
