Synopsis

Synopsis


Bright, intelligent, passionate and free, Eleanor is Karl Marx’s youngest daughter. Among the first women to link the themes of feminism and socialism, she takes part in the workers’ battles and fights for women’s rights and the abolition of child labor. In 1883 she meets Edward Aveling and her life is crushed by a passionate but tragic love story.

Press

“Garai commands attention as a defiant woman who was punkishly far ahead of her time.” 
"The film looks so rich: the fabrics and the costumes and the interior decoration are Victoriana by way of Etro in a constant autumnal splurge of russets and golds."

Screen International

“ An audacious retelling" 
"Romola Garai going full Courtney Love makes for one of the film’s livelier tilts against biopic proprieties… 
She pulls off a performance here that is reserved, unshowy but absolutely affecting…”  

The Guardian  ⭑⭑⭑

"An explosive performance from star Romola Garai"

Indiewire

"Nicchiarelli’s film feels like its own kind of manifesto: one in which period pieces can speak plainly and freshly to the present”  

The Telegraph

"From all the Italian movies we have seen this year in Venice, Miss Marx stands out the most with its progressive dimension"

Telerama

“Richly shot…(Nicchiarelli’s) fourth narrative feature confirms her as an auteur of distinctive thematic and aesthetic preoccupations”
