Originally titled L'amica geniale, My Brilliant Friend is based on writer Elena Ferrante's popular Neapolitan Novels.

A coming-of-age drama, the show chronicles the friendship between Elena and Raffaella, or Lila, two girls who meet in their first year of primary school in 1950.

Now an elderly woman, Elena recounts their relationship over the course of more than 60 years, with various ups and downs along the way.

Well-acted and wonderfully shot, the series will leave you mesmerised. Not only is My Brilliant Friend an introspective and engrossing show, it's also a great adaptation of its source material. Whether or not you've read the books, there's plenty to love here.
