Director Luca Guadagnino looks at “Call Me by Your Name” as a family film first.

“It’s a film in which you can understand what are the visible ties that unite people together and make them into a nucleus like a family,” Guadagnino said.

“Call Me by Your Name” stars Timothee Chalamet, Armie Hammer, and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Variety Screening Series is presented by FilmStruck.
