Review

the geiger counter is ticking reasonably for this forthright biopic of marie curie, born maria skłodowska: the ancient double-nobel winner in physics for the invention of radioactivity, after which in chemistry for the discovery of radium and polonium. screenwriter jack thorne has adapted lauren redniss’s lots widespread image novel approximately marie and her husband and clinical partner pierre curie (to whom the nobel committee at the start desired to confer the prize with out marie – unable to believe that a girl could be critical in medical discovery). the iranian-born french movie-maker marjane satrapi directs.

marie is performed with dignity and composure with the aid of rosamund pike, although with barely more froideur than become possibly the case. sam riley does a decent process of playing pierre; anya taylor-joy is marie’s equally awesome scientist daughter irène and simon russell beale has a harrumphing cameo as the younger marie’s beetle-browed doctoral supervisor, professor gabriel lippmann, who refuses to let her have the centers that she needs. in spite of the slightly schmaltzy meet-cute that the film contrives between marie and pierre, pike is right on the abrupt and maladroit facet of marie, which coexists with a romantic streak, and her preliminary (well-founded) suspicion that pierre’s interest in her work may also really end in his taking it over, without her getting any of the credit.

the movie partially follows the conventional length-biopic template with the tale extending in flashback from marie being wheeled into health facility along with her final contamination. however the narrative is more uncommon and bold – with its stylised flashforward sequences showing the consequences of marie’s discovery, occurring like dream-premonitions. there may be a micro-drama of a child with cancer being handled with radiotherapy in the Fifties, and scenes displaying the destruction of hiroshima and us nuclear weapons trying out. it is not clean to realize a way to take those sequences: they disrupt conventional storytelling in thrilling approaches, and yet it's miles disconcerting to look nuclear struggle as the obvious evil deployed efficiently to “balance” the good implications of most cancers treatment.

the film is on stronger floor simply displaying marie and irène’s paintings with cellular discipline-health center x-ray machines in the course of the first global war. satrapi’s autobiographical characteristic debut, persepolis, in 2007 become in part about her immigrant enjoy, and for all that the film is cautiously respectful of curie’s greatness, satrapi suggests the same warm temperature and empathy for marie’s loneliness as a polish girl who has to leave her place of origin to discover her future. it's far a deferential portrait of a first-rate girl in technology – and i discovered myself questioning approximately the long-gestating biopic project at the chemist and x-ray crystallographer rosalind franklin, whose work on dna whose paintings on dna changed into neglected by using the nobel committee, given that the prize can simplest visit dwelling recipients. there was a excellent bbc television film on the situation in 1987. life tale starred juliet stevenson as franklin, with jeff goldblum as james watson and tim pigott-smith as francis crick and became based totally on watson’s own self-admiring account. a new edition might take a exceptional tack.
