The incredible, true story of Marie Curie (Rosamund Pike) and her ground-breaking scientific achievements.
In Paris, 1893, Marie meets fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley). The pair go on to marry, raise two daughters and change the face of science forever by jointly winning the Nobel Prize for the discovery of radium in 1903. Marie Curie was the first female scientist to win the esteemed prize. Satrapi seamlessly balances Marie’s accomplishments and struggles with the more complex realities that haunt her legacy. Compelling, creative, thoughtful and undeniably beautiful, ‘Radioactive’ confirms Satrapi’s (‘Persepolis’ 2007) status as one of the most original and important filmmakers working today.
