The first two episodes of the long-awaited series directed by Saverio Costanzo, ‘My Brilliant Friend’ sold out in Italian movie theaters.

After conquering Venice International Film Festival public and critics, the fiction is in cinemas. The story, directed by Saverio Costanzo and based on the homonymous novel by Elena Ferrante, arouses great enthusiasm in cinemas, where, on 1, 2 and 3 of October 2018, the first two of the eight episodes will be screened.

It was therefore a unique event for fans of the bestseller that, after having enchanted 10 million readers worldwide, has thrilled audiences throughout Italy on the first day of film screening, a remarkable success despite the fact that the series will be broadcast from November 27th on Rai1 and will be available from the same date on Raiplay and Timvision platform.

The series ‘My Brilliant Friend’, which includes as executive producer the Oscar-winning Paolo Sorrentino, is co-produced by HBO and TimVision with Fandango and Wildside and will be distributed abroad by FremantleMedia.
