The award-winning, beloved Neapolitan Novels by Italian author Elena Ferrante tell an epic, riveting tale of love, loss, hardships and the enduring power of female friendship. After its run on Sky Atlantic this summer, the second series of this stunning, Italian-language adaptation My Brilliant Friend: The Story of a New Name arrives on digital 10th July 2020 and DVD 27th July 2020 from Acorn Media International.

Elena Greco is an elderly writer whose best friend Lila has disappeared without a trace, so Elena begins to write the story of their lives growing up together in a mob-ruled, poverty-stricken neighbourhood in 1950s Naples. As children, Elena (Elisa Del Genio) and Lila's (Ludovica Nasti) friendship is put to the test as financial disparities provide them with very different opportunities in life. Lila's writing genius is stifled after her parents can no longer afford further education and put her to work, while Elena flourishes in school, no longer in the shadow of her friend's brilliance.

The second series follows Elena (Margherita Mazzucco) and Lila (Gaia Girace) as adolescents into the Swinging Sixties, where this fierce, complex friendship must endure romantic rivalry and shocking violence, as the notorious Solara gangster family becomes harder to avoid entanglements with. Both growing into beautiful young women, they draw the attentions of a powerful gang-leader's son, a grocer, a mechanic, a schoolboy and his father, all while navigating the trials and tribulations of marriage and university, abuse and motherhood, and critical acclaim for a novel that sparks jealousy between these women whose lives are so closely intertwined.

This dramatic and deeply moving story of a lifetime shared is deftly directed by celebrated Italian filmmakers Saverio Costanzo (Hungry Hearts) and Alice Rohrwacher (Happy as Lazzarro). Delve into this decades-long, pushand-pull friendship filled with secrets kept, and trust built and broken. Will Elena ever unveil the mystery of Lila, her brilliant friend, and her worst enemy?
