Capital

Based on a true-ish series of events in 19th century London, Capital is a rollicking good time — and a story we can all relate to. The story follows Karl Marx and his teenage daughter. She wants a fashionable silk bonnet, and he doesn’t want to buy it for her. The reasons why include that he is a political writer and has dedicated his life to teaching to principles of communal economy, but also he’s flat broke. Quite serendipitously, a scandalous letter, replete with sordid details about an affair between two famous people, falls into their laps. The younger Marx thinks she’s found a way to buy her new bonnet, but her father’s not sold.
