My Brilliant Friend: The Story of a New Name 2

Based on Elena Ferrante's second book of her four-part series, this Italian period drama follows Elena and Lila's journey into adulthood as they weather romance, heartbreak, success and betrayal.

This season begins where the first left off, with Lila newly - and unhappily - married to upper crust grocer Stefano Carracci and Elena unsure of her future, both romantically and academically.

Believing she lost her own identity when she took her husband's name, Lila is defiant in her marriage as their world continues to orbit around the Solara family, while model student Elena comes to realise that she is not happy inside or outside her neighbourhood.

During a holiday in Ischia, the two girls reunite with their old childhood acquaintance Nino Sarratore, now a university student with great expectations.

The seemingly random encounter will forever change the nature of their bond, projecting the girls into two completely different worlds.

Lila becomes a skillful sales assistant in the elegant shoe shop in central Naples owned by the powerful Solara family, and Elena obstinately continues her studies as she prepares to attend university in Pisa.

As their worlds expand and they're forced to deal with more adult and complex problems, Elena and Lila fight to find their place in the rapidly changing Italy of the '60s, while their fraught relationship continues to vacillate between love and contempt.
