Ah, if only I were 25 years younger!!!
Yep, seriously old enough to be this ones mother and then some.
As you will have noticed from recent posts, I have fallen in love with a film called ‘Call Me By Your Name’, for which this young man has earned himself a ‘Best Actor’ Oscar nomination and a ‘Best Actor’ BAFTA nomination at the age of just 22.
The film is also shortlisted for the Best Picture Oscar and BAFTA and he also co-stars in ‘Lady Bird’ which is also nominated for Best Picture Oscar this year.
This is a young man to seriously watch out for.
Talented is an understatement. Just take a look at this monologue from ‘Miss Stevens (2016)’
I first saw him play the teenage son of Matthew McConaughey in ‘Interstellar’ but it is undoubtedly his stunning performance in ‘Call Me By Your Name’ that won my heart.
As a taster, watch this scene that was shot in one complete take where he’s not only holding dialogue with Armie Hammer, he is also playing a piece on the piano and playing it three different ways!!
Then take a look at this wonderful inteview he did alongside Armie Hammer on the ‘Ellen’ show and see what a heartbreaker this young man is going to be!!
He and the film are up against some very strong competition this year but I am sending all my best wishes.
If he misses out this year, I am in no doubt we will see him win plenty more in the future.
