I don't care how handsome Armie Hammer is (though he's a charmer, judging from that photo)

I don't care if there are hot steamy erotic scenes or not.

I don't care if it is awarded gazillion 'mainstream' or 'indie' prizes.

What I DO CARE is that this isn't some sort of drama, ending with one of them death and the other alone forever. I want a mainstream gay story that ends up being enjoyable but also uplifting.

I have never recovered from the fiasco that was Brokeback Mountain, I left the cinema feeling used and cheated.

Article says the movie is based on a book, I'll try to find it, but meanwhile...to anyone who happened to read it already: Happy ending or Tragic ending?

Yes, I agree, I'm fed up with the tragic gay stories also. There are rare exceptions, I liked "Holding the man" very much.

Hollywood doesnt understand that the "emotional gore" ( precious, sad sad endings like BBM, etc) are not deep.... are just chickflicks for angsty persons.
a wish for more interesting movies :S

Even Oscars are partial to sad endings Gay Themed Film, I think only Moonlight (a mild happy ending) and The Kids are Alright are the 2 exceptions. Take for example the following nominated gay themed films in Oscars

The Imitation Games 2014
Dallas Buyers Club 2013
Milk 2008
Brokeback Mountain 2005
Capote 2005
The Crying Game 1992

This is the description of the book from Goodreads

Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliff-side mansion on the Italian Riviera. Unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, at first each feigns indifference. But during the restless summer weeks that follow, unrelenting buried currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire, intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them. What grows from the depths of their spirits is a romance of scarcely six weeks' duration and an experience that marks them for a lifetime. For what the two discover on the Riviera and during a sultry evening in Rome is the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

The psychological maneuvers that accompany attraction have seldom been more shrewdly captured than in André Aciman's frank, unsentimental, heartrending elegy to human passion. Call Me by Your Name is clear-eyed, bare-knuckled, and ultimately unforgettable.

Note: a couple of scenes have been released. 

Here, tennis (in the book) has been replaced by volleyball:
