Leo’s love week was once again upon us and romance was in the air. The incessant giggling, the teddy bears, the boxes of chocolate and the couples exhibiting, more than usual, their feelings for each other was definitely a sign that Cupid had found some targets among the Lion community.

Based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Andre Aciman, “Call Me By Your Name” gets its odd title from a line during a romantic scene where the main character’s love interest tells him, “call me by your name . . . and I will call you by mine.” What sets this coming-of-age movie apart from your typical sappy Nicholas Sparks romance is the real emotions it evokes from viewers. The character, young and naive Elio (Timothee Chalamet) has a hopeless crush on smart and cocky Oliver (Armie Hammer). To make Oliver jealous, Elio starts a relationship with…
