Oliver is lodging at the 17th century Lombardy villa owned by Elio's family for the course of his summer internship. But for both young men, the unexpected events of those few months in 1983 will end up teaching them more about themselves and the world than they could have ever imagined.

One of the most powerful and emotive romantic movies ever produced, it sees Elio and Oliver spend much of the summer weighing the other up from afar - before their relationship evolves into something else entirely. 

A begrudging friendship inevitably leads to flirtation as the two find ways to spend an increasing amount of time in each other's company, the sexual tension building to almost unbearable levels. 

The movie has amassed a huge international following and even catapulted the picturesque city of Crema outside of Milan - where Sicilian-born director Luca Guadagnino lives and chose to film Call Me By Your Name - on the tourist trail.

It's witty, heart-breaking and beautifully filmed with superb acting throughout - follow our guide as we explain how to watch Call Me By Your Name online and stream the critically-acclaimed film from anywhere.

How to watch Call Me By Your Name online in the US

Starz (opens in new tab)

In the US, you can stream Call Me By Your Name on Starz (opens in new tab), a premium cable and satellite channel that boasts first-run original television like Power and Outlander, alongside a big helping of Hollywood movies fresh out of the cinema.

You can add the channel to your existing TV package, if you like - or if you're looking to cut the cord, you have a couple of alternative options for streaming Starz.

You can get a subscription directly from the network itself, but right now we actually recommend getting it through a third-party like  Amazon Prime Video (opens in new tab)

Amazon is worth considering as you can get both a FREE 30-day Prime trial (opens in new tab) and then a FREE 7-day Starz trial on top of that. In both cases, you can cancel at any time, with Prime costing $12.99 a month and Starz an additional $8.99 a month - but only if you decide to keep them.

Other ways to watch Starz and stream Call Me By Your Name 

Getting Starz through the network itself currently costs $5 a month for the first 6-months (opens in new tab) - but there's no indication what it costs thereafter or how long your commitment lasts.

It's either an oversight or just plain shabby on the service's part, and hopefully they'll clarify things soon, so potential subscribers can sign up with confidence.

And remember, if you do pony up for a streaming service, you can watch it wherever you are - all you need to do it download a good VPN (opens in new tab) and follow our instructions above.
