It has been a long time since I felt that a film really captured the essence of first love in all its beauty, all its joy, and all of its angst. Call Me By Your Name is, perhaps, the best story of the Best Picture nominees this year, not because it breaks barriers or pushes boundaries, but because it is simple:  Elio and Oliver fall in love. That’s the story, but the way in which it is told leaves you with that pang in your heart, the kind you only get when you’ve witnessed a true love story.
