Description

It’s 1941 and Captain Corelli, an enigmatic young Italian officer, arrives on the sun-soaked Greek island of Cephalonia. Initially shunned by the locals, he proves to be civilised, humorous – and an excellent musician. When Corelli is thrown together with the quick-witted and headstrong Pelagia, they discover all of the complexities of love and how it can bloom in the most unexpected way.

Rona Munro’s ambitious adaptation of Bernières bestselling novel dazzlingly captures all of the passion and poetry of this epic love story.
