What's the age difference of the guys in call me by your name?? I've heard a lot of shit about it but I'm not even sure what the movie is actually about so I don't know how to react to the apparently large age difference between them
The book age gap is 7 years. Elio is 17 and Oliver is 24. The thing people may be getting all uppity about is that the actors in the film have a 10 year age gap. Timothee is 21 and Armie Hammer is 31. But it never bothered me because my nan is 10 years older than my grandad so I don’t see it as a big deal? They’re both legal, consenting adults in the book,the movie, and off-screen. It’s a love story about two men who fall in love. There’s nothing wrong about it.
If we were to get technical about age differences in Hollywood think about all those romance movies who have the female lead being 10+ years younger than her male counterpart. If that’s okay then why is it not okay for two men, y’know?
The fact that Timothee has a baby face might also factor into the reason some people might find it strange? I dunno. I’m super excited about the movie so I would say give it a go :D
