Prior to its premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, many wondered if director Luca Guadagnino would include a graphic sex scene involving a peach. In the book, Elio (Timothée Chalamet) visits Marzia’s house and has sex with her. In the afternoon, he lies on his bed masturbating with a cut-open peach and ejaculates inside it. Later Oliver (Armie Hammer) visits Elio’s room, tastes the peach and its contents, and then has anal sex with Elio. Make a long story short, that controversial scene made the cut.

It depicts a gay love affair between an intellectually precocious 17-year-old American-Italian Jewish boy and a visiting 24-year-old American Jewish scholar in 1980s Italy.
