Punk rock cuts the emotions

Well, seems quite an interesting costume drama? Not be so sure! The italian director has made this movie original by mixing in very strange music, nothing less than something like punk rock. Nichiarelli kinda says that the free and very very modern spirit of Marx's daughter was kinda imprisoned in the 19th century's dogmas and especially patriarchal society, where women did not have even a half of freedoms as today. So there is tons of femminism in the movie. Oh yes, all femminists have to see it (seriously). I do understand this approach BUT...for me it did not function. On the contrary - it frightened me away. I could not connect with this drama. This rock music just cancelled any connection i would liked to have with the movie. And especially the ending, the finale. OMG. My big compliments, however, go to the production design - very good, of Alessandro Vannucci and Igor Gabriel. Also costume design - Massimo Parrini - 9 points.

Sad story about the daughter of Karl Marx

Miss Marx (2020) was written and directed by Susanna Nicchiarelli. It stars Romola Garai as Eleanor Marx and Patrick Kennedy as her lover, Edward Aveling. Both of them are skilled actors, and portray their roles well.

Eleanor Marx (1855 - 1898) was the youngest daughter of Karl Marx and his wife Jenny von Westphalen. She was a fiery socialist and advocate for women's rights and worker's rights.

I wasn't familiar with the life of Eleanor Marx when I saw the movie, but I did some reading about her before I wrote this review. The film appears factually accurate. Of course, all of the dialog is created by writer-collector Nicchiarelli, and there's no way to confirm what was actually said. Even so, it sounded reasonable and realistic to me.

We saw the film virtually from the Washington, D. C. Labor Film Festival. It worked well on the small screen. For reasons I can't understand, the movie has a terrible IMDb rating of 5.6. (OK--it's not a happy movie, but that doesn't mean it's a bad movie.) I thought it was much better than that, and rated it 8.

P. S. For reasons unknown to me, there's punk rock music on the soundtrack. Not a good choice.

Terrible movie

What did I just see? This movie was horrible, eleanor marx deserves better than this pointess feminismbating monstrosity of a film! Not only is the portrayal of of eleanor marx and her contemporaries ridiculous, the use of punk music makes the whole experience unwatchable. And the silly dance scene at the end, why?? To show that the actress playing marx is not a good dancer?

I always try to mention something positive when talking abt films which i found bad and in this case its the acting that sticks out - despite the terrible script and >ideas< the actresses and actors make the best of this project.
