Biopic about Marie Curie, with Rosamund Pike playing the nobel-prize winning French physicist and chemist who pioneered research into radioactivity.
After meeting fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley), the pair go on to marry and change the face of science forever by their discovery of radioactivity. The genius of the Curies’ world-changing discoveries and the ensuing Nobel Prize propels the devoted couple into the international limelight.
Directed by Marjane Satrapi (PERSEPOLIS), this is a bold, visionary depiction of the transformative effects and ensuing fallout of the Curies’ work and how this shaped the defining moments of the 20th Century.
“Deeply personal, sometimes tipping into the experimental, Radioactive is like no biographical feature I’ve ever seen.” ~ Joelle Monique, Paste Magazine.
