Italian Drama My Brilliant Friend Premieres Thurs 11 Aug on SBS on Demand



Highly regarded Italian drama My Brilliant Friend gets an SBS On Demand premiere this Thursday. Seasons one and two have been seen in Australia on Foxtel but season three is getting an Australian premiere here.

A critically acclaimed, global smash hit series, My Brilliant Friend is the remarkable television adaptation of the Neapolitan novels that took the world by storm, by Elena Ferrante. We meet best friends Lila (Gaia Girace) and Elena (Margherita Mazzucco) as they navigate the complex social politics of the 1950s Neapolitan suburb in which they grow up. The series brings the books magically to life, with all the charm and intelligence that made them so astoundingly successful. The result is a prestige series, with exquisite performances charting a complex female friendship with which viewers around the world have fallen in love.

All 24 episodes from seasons 1-3 will be available. In Italian with English subtitles.
