Miss Marx or the involuntary side effect of living

Jeff Recommended

Based on the true story of Karl Marx’s youngest daughter who was known throughout Victorian England as an actress and political activist, Eleanor Marx finds it far easier to fight for equality on the stage than in the bedroom. Falling into a tempestuous affair with a married man, can she follow her heart without betraying everything she symbolizes?
Select Praise:
“A story like this would seem to make for quite the dirge, but Dawkins’s writing and Shuchman’s direction skillfully keep things balanced. Where most would go for grit or melodrama, Dawkins creates an enchantingly elevated world with a heart-tugging nostalgic sheen, punctuated by a streak of Marx Brothers humor”.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – TimeOut Chicago
