Martin Eden is drawn out of his Neapolitan working class background into bourgeois society when he defends a young boy from a beating on the docks. Falling in love with Elena, the daughter of a wealthy industrialist, he dreams of becoming a writer, and her social equal. Self-education and his very success, however, take him into a world of left-wing politics, and as his horizons broaden and grow more complex, they become more troubled, reflecting the upheavals of the world around him.

“The entirety of the 20th century — its promises, illusions and traumas — sweeps through the audacious and thrilling Martin Eden.” Manohla Dargis,
