Based on Jack London’s autobiographical novel and set in 1909, Martin Eden tells the story of a poor, rough-hewn, and unschooled sailor (Martin Eden), who unexpectedly meets Ruth Morse, a magnetic young woman of means and education. Their unconventional attraction upends both lives and propels timely themes of impossible love, the confines of class, aspiration to the American Dream, and the quest for a comfortable place in an inconstant world.
