Call Me by Your Name (Netflix)
Timothée Chalamet sunning in rural Italy, engaging in a swoon-worthy forbidden romance; what more could you want? The film follows a young man Elio (Timothée) and graduate student Oliver (Armie Hammer), who meet one summer and fall passionately in love. Playing Elio with maturity and melancholy, Timothée charms audiences effortlessly. It’s the film that won him his Oscar nomination, and once you watch it, you’ll see why.
Beautiful Boy (Amazon Prime Video)
The title does not refer to Timothée’s good looks but rather his character’s spirit. Jokes apart, this socially-relevant film stars Timothée as Nicolas, whose seemingly perfect life could get ruined due to his addiction to hard drugs. However, his father (Steve Carell) is hell-bent on doing everything to save his son. Timothée delivers a convincing and moving performance akin to an experienced actor. If only to catch Timothée's nuanced performance, this one’s unmissable.
The King (Netflix)
From contemporary characters to medieval kings, is there a role Timothée can’t play?! The movie sees him foray into the historical-fiction genre, starring as the monarch Henry V. The epic war film focuses on Henry’s political rise and the accompanying challenges. Timothée plays the titular role with aplomb, showcasing both grit and vulnerability in equal measure. His performance in this film will convince you that he is, in fact, the king and is here to stay!
Little Women (MX Player)
There are innumerable reasons to watch Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, and Timothée Chalamet is one! While the film largely follows the lives of the March sisters – namely, Jo, Amy, Meg, and Beth in 19th century America, Timothée plays their childhood best friend, Laurie. He displays Laurie’s playfulness and poignancy with utmost ease. Matching up with talents like Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson, and others, Timothée lights up every frame.
Don’t Look Up (Netflix)
In a film that stars stalwarts like Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, and Jennifer Lawrence, Timothée still manages to hold his own and how! The film picks up when two scientists, played (Leo and Jen), discover that a destructive asteroid is headed for Earth. Don’t Look Up is an allegory on climate change and stars Timothée as Yule, a young shoplifter who idealises Jennifer’s Kate. Adding depth and youthful optimism to an already excellent film, Timothée makes you sit up and notice him.
