Drama | Historical | Political | Biographical | Literary

It’s 1844, and Karl Marx (August Diehl) is 26-years-old, struggling to find outlets for his ideas while eking out a meagre existence with his wife Jenny (Vicky Krieps) in Paris. Meanwhile in Manchester, Friedrich Engels (Stefan Konarske) is the 24-year-old son of a factory owner who has just published a study detailing the desperate conditions the English proletariat endure. When the two Germans meet, they overcome their initial frostiness and set about changing the world. Raoul Peck’s return to narrative filmmaking following the celebrated I Am Not Your Negro (2016) is a daring, intelligent depiction of how The Communist Manifesto came into being.
