MISS MARX depicts the life and battles of Eleanor "Tussy" Marx, a prominent figure in the socialist scene of the 19th century and the youngest of the Karl Marx's daughters. After dedicating her youth to her father's work, Eleanor's life was defined by a relentless engagement with the plight of the working class. Captivated by the love for her father as well as for her partner, Eleanor's whole existence was conducted in the name of freedom and self-determination.
MISS MARX offers an intimate look at a woman who chooses to live out her entire life in contrast to the gray hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie. Thanks to director's gaze and the impressive work of lead actress Romola Garai, Eleanor transcends her time to become an archetype of the modern woman, constantly battling for public recognition and personal freedom.
After the blazing success of NICO, 1988, Susanna Nicchiarelli further explores and expands the boundaries of biographic films. With a mashed-up style and featuring an astonishing punk rock soundtrack, MISS MARX sketches out a portrait whose force embraces a century and more of struggles for emancipation and dignity.
