Marie Curie, the Courage of Knowledge

MARIE NOËLLE
Germany, Poland, France, 2016
95 minutes, Color
Official website

Polish actress Karolina Gruszka stars in this sweeping biography of the legendary Nobel Prize-winning physicist and chemist, who courted controversy with both her challenge of France's male-dominated academic establishment and her unconventional romantic life. Marie Curie, the Courage of Knowledge depicts the blissful union between Marie Curie (Gruszka) and her husband Pierre (Charles Berling), the father of her children, her partner in research, and co-winner of that first Nobel. When Pierre perishes in a tragic accident, it's up to Marie to continue their work. But, as a woman and a foreigner, she's met with doubly fierce resistance. And though she perseveres, she's nearly undone by revelations regarding her relationship with a married colleague. Gruszka's performance, alternately stoic and vulnerable, never lets us forget that this visionary woman was also very much a complicated and fascinating human being.—Toronto International Film Festival

In French with English subtitles
