Biopics, Period and Historical
Born in Poland before taking her talents to France, the scientist Marie Curie became known for her pioneering work on radioactivity and specifically for her discovery of radium and polonium, which contributed hugely towards finding treatments for cancer. Along with her husband Pierre, she established herself as one of the most important scientific minds of the 20th century and this film focuses on both her scientific and romantic passions, which often clashed up against each other. Recreating all the defining moments in Marie’s life, from meeting her husband and lifelong research partner to winning her two Nobel prizes through to her problematic affair later in life, Radioactive is an inspirational and informative story of scientific discovery with a strong central performance from Rosamund Pike.
