- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A female scientist of the late 19th century discovers two new elements, comes up with the theory of radioactivity, and must contend with the fallout of that and other moments of life.
It's 1893 and Marie Sklodowska (ROSAMUND PIKE) is a Polish scientist living and working in Paris, but not getting any respect from her male colleagues. In need of a stable place to conduct her experiments, she agrees to a business arrangement with fellow scientist Pierre Curie (SAM RILEY) who runs a lab populated by several other scientists, including Paul Langevin (ANEURIN BARNARD).
Combining their work, Marie comes up with the theory of radioactivity while discovering two new elements, polonium and radium, and the two scientists develop chemistry for one another, marry and have kids. But their continued exposure to radiation along with a family tragedy and a later public scandal threaten to undermine Marie's work and her legacy of future breakthroughs based on that.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Unless they're interested in the true-life woman and story or are fans of anyone in the cast, it doesn't seem that likely.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For thematic elements, disturbing images, brief nudity and a scene of sensuality.
