My Brilliant Friend

Preview by Jack Foley

MY Brilliant Friend, the breathtakingly cinematic foreign language period drama series about a lifelong friendship filled with love and envy, arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD on March 18, 2019 – just in time for Mother’s Day. Pre-order now.

When the most important friend in her life seems to have disappeared without a trace, Elena Greco (Elisa Del Genio, Margherita Mazzucco and Elisabetta De Palo), a now elderly woman immersed in a house full of books, turns on her computer and starts writing the story of their friendship.

She met Raffaella Cerullo (Ludovica Nasti and Gaia Girace), whom she has always called Lila, in the first year of primary school in 1950.

Set in a dangerous and fascinating Naples, their story begins and goes on to cover over 60 years of their lives as she tries to describe the mystery of Lila, Elena’s brilliant friend and – in a way – her best friend, and her worst enemy.

Following a glowing critical reception upon broadcast, the eight-part foreign language drama – based on the international best-seller by Elena Ferrante – has been greenlit for a second series, which aligns with the second of Ferrante’s Neapolitan quadrilogy.

Catch up on the first series of My Brilliant Friend on home entertainment platforms from March 18, 2019.
