Trivia

The fact that Christine (Saoirse Ronan) and best friend Julie (Beanie Feldstein) wear the same color of nail polish is pure coincidence. Then, since there was a considerable degree of improvisational latitude allowed for character development on-set, a decision was made to have them wear the same polish color for the entire film.

Goofs

When they were shopping at the (Sacramento) Thrift Town, the metal hangars on the racks that are shown, were not used back then, they have only been used in the last three years or so. Also the 'sale' signs with 30% and 50% off on the dressing room doors, have only been recent in the last few years. Back in 2003 there were not signs like that. See more »

Character Is The Thing
18 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

How refreshing and invigorating to meet new people. Familiar and new all at the same time. Familiar because the extraordinary Saorise Ronan connected me to her soul, as soon as she appeared on the screen. Remarkable. She is, without question, one of the best actresses of her generation. She has exceptional support here, Laurie Metcalf as the mother determined to keep her feelings at bay, Lucas Hedges, providing one of the most moving, truthful moments in the film and allowing Saorise Ronan to give us a masterful class in empathy. Timothee Chalamet proves in a very short space of time that he is here to stay. His Elio in Call Me By your Name will be considered one of the great breakthrough performances in film history. Tracy Letts plays the father with irresistible humanity and then, of course, a heartfelt congratulations to the writer, director Greta Gerwing -
