Directed by Marjane Satrapi
Cast includes Rosamund Pike, Simon Russell Beale, Jonathan Aris, Aneurin Barnard, Sam Riley, Anya Taylor-Joy
Duration: 120 mins.
Rosamund Pike plays the Polish scientist Marie Curie, who discovered the radioactive elements radium and polonium. Working with her husband Pierre Curie (Sam Riley), she became the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize (she would also become the only person to receive two). Throughout her life Marie showed a steely reserve in the face of xenophobia and institutional hostility, but her discoveries and legacy came at a price, not only for the woman but also for the world.
Satrapi collapses a century of innovation and destruction from the discovery of chemotherapy to Chernobyl into a flat timeline that Curie can see right through as though looking at an x-ray. In those moments of stylistic imagination, the film glows. - Variety
A timely reminder of this exceptional woman's achievements. - Hollywood Reporter
