Martin Eden

Italy | Drama/Historical

Bold and dazzling, acclaimed writer/director Pietro Marcello’s multi award-winning drama Martin Eden is adapted from a 1909 novel and set in Italy’s pre-war history.

Thirty-something sailor Martin Eden (remarkable newcomer Luca Marinelli) is inspired to remake himself as a novelist, following a chance encounter with the sophisticated, wealthy Elena (the luminous Jessica Cressy). She immediately becomes not only the object of his passionate affections, but also the symbol of the status Martin aspires to achieve.

Newcomer Luca Marinelli is superb as the title role in this magnificent historical drama.
