Ferrante Fever

OPENING MARCH 8 EXCLUSIVELY AT THE QUAD CINEMA IN NEW YORK, MARCH 29 IN LOS ANGELES WITH ADDITIONAL CITIES TO FOLLOW

With over 5 million copies of her Neapolitan Novels sold and publication rights in 50 countries, Elena Ferrante is a global literary sensation. A journey between New York City’s cultural hub and Ferrante’s native Italy explores how an anonymous, translated author’s visceral tales of love and friendship gained such an enthusiastic following. Ann Goldstein, Sarah McNally, Jonathan Franzen and others weigh in on the Ferrante “craze” and what makes her work–and her mysterious persona–so uniquely captivating.
