From acclaimed Italian director Saverio Costanzo comes this drama series adaptation of "My Brilliant Friend," the first book in the "Neapolitan Novels" quadrilogy by pseudonymous Italian author Elena Ferrante. The story follows Elena Greco, a now-elderly woman who discovers that the most important friend in her life, Raffaella "Lila" Cerullo, seems to have disappeared without a trace. An author, immersed in a house full of books, Elena starts writing the story of their tempestuous friendship, starting from the point when they met during their first year of primary school in 1950.

    The story itself is superb and this adaption is so well done, a splendid recreation. Elena Ferrante must be pleased with the result. As a bonus, the soundtrack introduced us to “Nessuno”, by Italian singer Mina... what a treat! I hope we can get to see the remaining three books in this format.

    I had never read the books before and I began watching it on HBO because it looked interesting. I’m SO glad I did and since then it became my new obsession. The show motivated me to give the books a chance.
