Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) is history-making physicist and chemist Marie Curie in this biopic from Oscar-nominated director Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis).
"When Maria lands in Paris from Warsaw at age 24, she is passionately curious, but impatient with lesser minds. Meeting the more established Pierre Curie (Sam Riley) could be her salvation, but Maria — now Marie — proves disastrous at flirting and small talk. Yet even as the two argue, they recognize a mutual attraction. Soon Pierre and Marie agree to not just work together, but to marry. As they push their scientific investigation forward, the Curies unlock forces far beyond their control." (Toronto International Film Festival)
