Eleni is the 1985 film adaptation of the memoir "Eleni" by Greek-American journalist Nicholas Gage. Directed by Peter Yates, the film stars John Malkovich, Kate Nelligan, Linda Hunt and Glenne Headly.

Synopsis

As with the book, the film is told in a flashback format with Gage, now living in the United States, returning to his native Greece to solve the mystery of his mother's death when he was child. The film looks back to the effect of the 1940s Greek Civil War on the remote Greek village of his upbringing, and he investigates what happened to his mother after Communist guerillas invade the village. The main difference between the film and book was that the film focused more on the adult Gage and his investigation, while the book had more focus on Gage's impoverished small-town childhood.
