I just saw this film at the San Francisco Film Festival. I already knew about Madame Curie’s scientific achievements so I was interested in the personal aspects that this film revealed.
The sexist aspects are relevant today. A woman tries to get recognition for her scientific achievements but is thwarted almost every step of the way. Nevertheless, she persisted….
It’s a beautiful film, the cinematography is excellent. It’s got an artistic feeling that I didn’t expect from this period piece.
