I believe this is more Elio than Oliver, as he is the tie that binds everyone together. I believe the 'finding' is each characters' true self, the one that is exposed in the form of human love.

I think "me" applies to the four main characters - Samuel & Miranda as well as Elio & Oliver. Each is searching for something separately and finds it, eventually, together. This is in response to the love and loss they have all experienced in their past.

The "Me" is any of us who wish to be found and loved, and those of us who obsess about a love relationship we wish had not ended.

I think the 'me' applied to all of the characters. All of the characters were trying to find something or someone for themselves first.

I like beckys answer best. I think "Me" is everyone searching for love and hoping to find it.

I think the 'me' was Elio.

To be found to me means being accepted as I am.

Me equals the revealing of who you are in that safe and secure place, to yourself or another. Listening to that inner voice, your gut whatever one calls it.
