Highly political film about the meeting between a journalist exiled to France (Karl Marx) and the rebellious son of a wealthy German industrialist (Friedrich Engels). Sparks fly. The director of the hard-hitting documentary I’m Not Your Negro (2016) delves into the early years of the author of Das Kapital and his meeting with his alter ego, Friedrich Engels.
