Movie Info

With over 10 million copies of her "Neapolitan Novels" sold in over 50 countries, Elena Ferrante is a global literary sensation. She was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World and HBO recently turned the first book in the quartet, My Brilliant Friend, into a subtitled miniseries hit with more seasons to come. A journey between New York City's cultural hub and Ferrante's native Italy, the film explores how an anonymous author's visceral tales of love and friendship gained such an enthusiastic following. Hillary Clinton, Roberto Saviano, Jonathan Franzen and others weigh-in on the Ferrante "craze" and what makes her work--and her mysterious persona--so uniquely captivating.


Critic Reviews for Ferrante Fever

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Ferrante Fever delivers a fan-friendly examination of the novelist and her works, and what it lacks in depth it more than makes up for with enthusiasm.

There's almost no narrative structure, which is not the sort of thing you want to say about anything associated with the biggest name in modern fiction.

It quickly becomes clear that the time it takes to sit through this padded mash note would be better spent immersed in Ferrante's mesmerizing work instead.

Tries to avoid addressing the big question in front of it, just who is this anonymous Elena Ferrante, and is NOT knowing who she is a big part of her appeal?

Feb 24, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Like a good book club session, Ferrante Fever is fun because it's nice to be in the company of people who are as crazy about these novels as you are.
