Marie Curie: The Courage of Knowledge
director:
Marie Noelle
cast:
Karolina Gruszka, Arieh Worthalter, Charles Berling

In 1903, physicist and chemist Marie Curie became the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize. In this irresistibly stylish and intimate portrayal of the woman behind the scientific accomplishments, Marie (Karolina Gruszka) fights for recognition in a field that is dominated by men. In the wake of a personal tragedy followed by a scandal that threatens to overshadow her achievements, Marie fights to maintain respect in the scientific community and stays fiercely determined to do what she loves. A passionate and human look at the life of a trailblazer. “Director Marie Noelle brings a dreamy, impressionistic style to this drama, focusing on Curie’s romantic life and struggles as a woman, rather than dwelling on her scientific advancements.” (LA Times)
