The Young Karl Marx trailer takes us back to the ideals of Communism

  • The Young Karl Marx was made in response to the financial crisis that is still being felt across the world today and you can watch the latest trailer for the film above.

At the age of 26, Karl Marx embarks with his wife Jenny on the road to exile. In 1844 Paris they meet young Friedrich Engels, son of a factory owner and an astute student of the English proletariat class. Engels brings Marx the missing piece to the puzzle that composes his new vision of the world.

Together, between censorship and police raids, riots and political upheavals, they will preside over the birth of the labour movement, which until then had been mostly makeshift and disorganised. This will grow into the most complete theoretical and political transformation of the world since the Renaissance – driven, against all expectations, by two brilliant, insolent and sharp-witted young men.

August Diehl (Inglourious Basterds) and Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread) star as Karl Marx and his wife Jenny, led by director Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro). Olivier Gourmet, Hannah Steele and Alexander Scheer also feature.

No news yet on a UK date for The Young Karl Marx but we hope to see it at some point later in the year.
