New gay feature Call Me By Your Name getting stellar reviews

Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name is getting buzz and reviews as enthusiastic before its release as last year's Best Picture, Moonlight, did before its release. The film wowed viewers at Sundance last winter. Professional critics whose reviews have been posted on Rotten Tomatoes have been rhapsodic. The film is adapted from André Aciman's acclaimed 2007 novel. From USA Today:
     ...The '80s-set drama chronicles the passionate, secret romance between 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) —  son of a celebrated professor (Michael Stuhlbarg) — and 24-year-old scholar Oliver (Armie Hammer), who comes to study Greco-Roman culture and live with Elio's family for the summer.
Call Me is the final chapter of Guadagnino's so-called "Desire" trilogy, after 2009's Oscar-nominated I Am Love and last year's A Bigger Splash (both of which starred Tilda Swinton).

Bonus: LA-based comedian Brian Jordan Alvarez, whose web series, The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo was as hilarious as it was well-acted, finally got his feature, Everything is Free made. Trailer below.
