My Bril­liant Friend 9pm, Sky At­lantic

The Guardian - The Guide - - Sound & Vision - JS

The drama­ti­sa­tion of Elena Fer­rante’s first Neapoli­tan Novel reaches its fi­nal two episodes (the con­clu­sion is to­mor­row night) with Lila and Lenù both tak­ing uncer­tain leaps to­wards adult­hood. A se­ries that has boasted ju­di­cious cast­ing to go with its im­mer­sive sense of time and place once again leans heav­ily on its lead per­form­ers, Gaia Girace and Margherita Maz­zucco, who re­spond with an­other finely mea­sured por­trayal of two young women grow­ing up at slightly but cru­cially dif­fer­ent speeds. It’s be­witch­ing.
