The Lying Life of Adults is a new Netflix series that will either remind you of what it’s like to be young, free, and oblivious to the strains of this world or will remind you of what it’s like to be older, wiser, and held down by some of the regrets you hold for not living life to the fullest when you were much younger. It’s because of this show’s ability to portray two vastly different ages in such a beautiful way that we want to tell you all about what you can expect to see.

Here’s everything to know about The Lying Life of Adults.

The Lying Life of Adults plot synopsis

Based on Elena Ferrante’s 2019 novel of the same name, The Lying Life of Adults tells the riveting story of Giovanna, a powerhouse who was reckless and courageous as a young girl but has grown into a young woman with countless questions about who she is and where she belongs.

We journey through Giovanna’s transition from childhood to adulthood in a fascinating way that allows you to take a peek into what major decisions led to the person she is today, as well as what steps she could take to become the person she used to be.

See the official synopsis via Netflix Media Center below:

"The Lying Life of Adults is a powerful and singular portrait of Giovanna’s transition from childhood to adolescence in the 1990s. The search for a new face, after the happy one of childhood, oscillates between two consanguineous Naples which, however, fear and hate each other: the Naples above, which has given itself a fine mask, and the one below, which pretends to be excessive, trivial. Giovanna oscillates between high and low, now tumbling, now climbing, bewildered by the fact that, up or down, the city seems without answer and without escape."
