Martin Eden by Pietro Marcello



Martin Eden by Pietro Marcello

As part of the 32th Edition of the AFI European Union Film Showcase, we are pleased to announce the screening of Martin Eden by Pietro Marcello

Filmmaker Pietro Marcello transposes Jack London's 1909 American novel about a rugged, radical individual — seaman-turned-novelist Martin Eden — to a Neapolitan port city in the late 20th century. As Eden, the working-class sailor with big ambitions, Luca Marinelli gives a smolderingly intense performance; Jessica Cressy plays Elena, the bourgeois dream woman who motivates both Eden's carnal desire and his quest for literary greatness and social status.

Winner, Best Actor (Marinelli), 2019 Venice Film Festival; Winner, Platform Prize, 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.


Director: Pietro Marcello
Italy/France/Germany, 2019, 129 min
