Modern icon: The best movies starring Timothee Chalamet

Timothee Chalamet is a rising star in Hollywood, known for his incredible talent and poignant performances. He’s been compared to nearly every great movie star of the past several decades, including Daniel Day-Lewis, Al Pacino, and Leonardo DiCaprio. 

He has starred in several critically acclaimed movies since his breakout role in 2017’s Call Me by Your Name, and his career shows no signs of slowing down. He’s also hailed as a sex symbol among younger viewers, and has helped to usher in a modernized idea of what a leading man can be.

In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the best Timothee Chalamet movies you must watch.

Call Me By Your Name (2017)

Call Me by Your Name is a romantic drama film directed by Luca Guadagnino. It tells the story of a teenage boy named Elio (Chalamet) who falls in love with an older man named Oliver (Armie Hammer) during a summer in Italy. The film had very little behind it prior to release, but it became a sleeper hit and a critical darling.

The quality of the performances speak for themselves. The entire cast brings their A-game but it is Chalamet, in the lead role, who dominates. He became the youngest actor ever nominated for Best Actor, and anybody who watches this coming-of-age classic will understand this honor.

Little Women (2019)

Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Little Women stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, and Timothee Chalamet. The movie tells the story of the March sisters, who grow up in Concord, Massachusetts during the Civil War. 

Chalamet’s portrayal of the charming and impulsive Theodore “Laurie” Laurence is a standout performance here, making the most of limited screen time to play a young man who is unsure of what he wants in love, and is emotionally torn between women. A small but impactful role.

Lady Bird (2017)

Lady Bird is a coming-of-age comedy-drama directed by Greta Gerwig. It tells the story of Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) as she navigates her senior year of high school in Sacramento, California. Chalamet plays Kyle Scheible, a fellow student and brooding musician who becomes Lady Bird’s love interest. 

His charismatic portrayal of the character adds a unique dynamic to the movie, and the more time we spend with him, the more we come to realize that he’s not the right match for the titular character.

Beautiful Boy (2018)

Beautiful Boy is a biographical drama film directed by Felix Van Groeningen. It tells the story of a father (Steve Carell) and his son (Chalamet) as they navigate the latter’s drug addiction. Chalamet gives a devastating portrayal of a young man struggling with addiction and his relationship with his father feels painfully authentic.

Carell, who is still best known for his comedy work, rises to the material, and together he and Chalamet give performances that are dedicated as they are difficult to watch.

The King (2019)

The King is a historical epic directed by David Michod. It stars Chalamet as a young King Henry V, who navigates political and personal turmoil after his father’s death to become the ruler of England. There’s lots of action and excitement, but the real story here is the showdown between Chalamet and another young A-lister, Robert Pattinson.

These two are arguably the most famous actors under 35, so seeing them square off on the battlefield is worth the price of admission alone.


In conclusion, Chalamet has already crafted an impressive catalog of incredible performances in some of the most critically acclaimed movies of our time. He is undoubtedly one of the brightest young talents in Hollywood, and his movies are definitely worth revisiting as he continues to rise in stardom.
