Netflix unveiled the first look poster and release date for the ‘The Lying Life of Adults’, a series based on Elena Ferrante’s novel. The series is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on January 2, 2023. Check out the poster below.
The series is directed by Italian filmmaker and director Edoardo de Angelis. It stars Valeria Golino as the Neapolitan aunt of the story’s young protagonist Giovanna, played by newcomer Giordana Marengo.
The plot follows, “Giovanna’s pretty face is changing, turning ugly, at least so her father thinks. Giovanna, he says, looks more like her Aunt Vittoria every day. But can it be true? Is she really changing? Is she turning into her Aunt Vittoria, a woman she hardly knows but whom her mother and father clearly despise? Surely there is a mirror somewhere in which she can see herself as she truly is.”
“Giovanna is searching for her reflection in two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: Naples of the heights, which assumes a mask of refinement, and Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity. She moves from one to the other in search of the truth, but neither city seems to offer answers or escape.”
The six-episode series is written by Laura Paolucci, Francesco Piccolo, and Edoardo De Angelis
Produced by Fandango and Netflix.
