WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Martin Eden (Marinelli), a working-class sailor, saves a young boy from a beating on the docks, and is invited to the boy’s bourgeois family home. There, he meets the boy’s sister Elena (Cressy), who becomes both the object of Martin’s affections and a symbol of the social status he wishes to achieve. He sets out to become a writer, which is challenged by the obstacles presented by his humble origins, and the growing socialist circle which puts him into direct conflict with Elena and her privileged lifestyle…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
