And, our top selling DVD for 2019 is….


Based on the bestselling novels of Elena Ferrante and directed by Saverio Costanzo, My Brilliant Friend is at once the story of a friendship and that of a nation. When the most important friend in her life seems to have disappeared without a trace, Elena Greco, a now elderly woman immersed in a house full of books, turns on her computer and starts writing the story of their friendship. Set in a dangerous and fascinating Naples, their story begins and goes on to cover over 60 years of their lives.

Ed. note: The list combines sales from all Readings shops and our website. The list covers sales from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019.
