One of the many great movies that premiered during TIFF’s opening weekend was Call Me By Your Name, a love story between a 24-year-old grad student (Armie Hammer) and his professor’s 17-year-old son (Timothee Chalamet). It takes place in Italy, where the legal age of consent is 14, and it’s getting all kinds of rave reviews. And if you’re wondering why you need to know all this info about the film, there’s a method to the madness. And by madness, we mean James Woods.

Woods, who has nothing to do with the movie, took to Twitter to say that the film “chips away at the last barriers of decency.” So Armie responded in the most brilliant way.

That’s when Amber Tamblyn, the heroine of our story, chimed in, backing up Armie’s claim with this gem:

Gross, right? So James did what any gross old dude would do. He accused Amber of lying.

Silly wabbit. Amber wasn’t having any of that and was on a takedown mission.

The result was this, an open letter to Woods, which she sent to Teen Vogue. Click on it, take in every single beautiful word, and we’ll be waiting for you on the flipside.

Amen, sister. Not sure what we loved more — her words, or the fact that she submitted that beautiful prose to Teen Vogue to serve as a guide and inspiration for its younger readership. Amber started off politely, addressing him with the title of Mr., and the intention to bestow upon him a gift, an awakening, a humbling, a little something she called, “Jesus, I come to thee.” But men like Mr. Woods don’t like to be humbled. And Tamblyn totally knew that. So she unleashed her inner goddess and went on the offensive. “I see your gaslight and now will raise you a scorched earth.”

And she’s not just our hero. So many people have come forward, either with proof, or merely in support of this amazing woman. We might not have wanted to go to Vegas with a 16-year-old Amber (you know, UNDERAGE AND ALL) but this older, wiser, awesome-r Amber? We’d party with her anytime.
