The film is based on MacArthur's award-winning graphic novel "Genius Grant" and stars Rosamund Pike as two-time Nobel Prize–winning scientist Marie Curie, the only person ever to win the Nobel Prize in two different fields, physics and chemistry, highlighting the groundbreaking discoveries she made with her husband, Pierre (Sam Riley).
Besides initiating understanding some of the most potent forces in the universe, she was a brilliant woman fighting simply to be heard, to claim her rightful place beside, not behind, her husband.
Played by Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, TIFF '18's A Private War), Curie is portrayed as a woman with her own eternal fire.
The cast of the film is Rosamund Pike, Sam Riley, Anya Taylor-Joy, Aneurin Barnard, Simon Russell Beale.
Born in Rasht, Iran, Marjane Satrapi with Vincent Paronnaud, she co-directed Persepolis, and Chicken with Plums both played the Festival. Her other features include Gang of the Jotas and the Festival selection The Voices. Radioactive (19) is her latest film.
