MISS MARX is a biopic about the bright, intelligent, passionate and free Eleanor Marx (played by Bafta and Golden Globe nominated performer Romola Garai, Suffragette, Atonement), the youngest daughter of Socialist Revolutionary Karl Marx. 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 London. In 1883 she meets
Edward Aveling (Patrick Kennedy, The Queen's Gambit) and her life is crushed by their passionate but tragic love story.

- THE TELEGRAPH
"Garai commands attention as a defiant woman who was punkishly far ahead of her time."
