Director Marjane Satrapi

In the male-dominated society of late 19th century Paris, Marie is a fiercely passionate scientist, who struggles to progress her ground-breaking research, despite her obvious brilliance. After joining forces with fellow scientist and future husband, Pierre Curie, they take her exploration of radioactivity forward, discovering not one, but two new elements: radium and polonium. The genius of the Curie's discoveries and the ensuing Nobel prize propels the devoted couple into the international limelight. But after a tragic accident Marie must continue to advance her work alone resulting in revolutionary discoveries that have dramatic consequences for the modern world.
