Martin Eden (2019)

2h 9m / Not Rated / Drama

NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM AT HOME!

This is an arthouse theatrical exclusive, not available on other streaming platforms.


Adapted from a 1909 novel by Jack London and set in a provocatively unspecified moment in Italy’s history, Martin Eden is a passionate and enthralling narrative fresco in the tradition of the great Italian classics. Martin (played by the marvelously committed Luca Marinelli) is a self-taught proletarian with artistic aspirations who hopes that his dreams of becoming a writer will help him rise above his station and marry a wealthy young university student (Jessica Cressy).

The dissatisfactions of working-class toil and bourgeois success lead to political awakening and destructive anxiety in this enveloping, superbly mounted bildungsroman, which won the Best Actor prize at the Venice Film Festival and the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.
