The anonymous author of the acclaimed Neapolitan novels is the subject of this immensely entertaining documentary. A portrait of a writer whose real identity remains a secret, of the world she captures in his critically acclaimed bestsellers and a tribute by her peers – from Jonathan Franzen and Elizabeth Strout to Robert Saviano – Ferrante Fever goes some way to explaining the fervour around the author of ‘My Brilliant Friend’. Named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, this documentary builds on the aura surrounding Ferrante.
