Inspiring story of a real wonder woman. MARIE CURIE. THE COURAGE OF KNOWLEDGE opens in Tower Theater in Miami, FL on Friday, July 14th
A new feature film by Marie Noelle MARIE CURIE. THE COURAGE OF KNOWLEDGE, a fascinating story of Madame Curie, the only two time Nobel Prize recipient, courageous woman and legendary Polish physicist and chemist will open in Village East Cinema in New York City on Friday, June 30, 2017. The French-Polish-German co-production will have its national limited release in major U.S. cities.
That inspiring tale of tenacity and female empowerment turns out to be surprisingly relevant and particularly important today. Director’s masterful focus is on Curie’s private life, especially her romantic passion, fearlessness and perseverance. A poignant love story shows a beautifully crafted portrait of the visionary and women’s right champion when she struggles for acceptance in a male-dominated academia in turn-of-the-century Paris.
The most turbulent five years in the life of a genius woman between 1905, when Marie Curie comes with Pierre Curie to Stockholm to be awarded the Novel Prize for the discovery of the radioactivity and 1911, when she receives her second Nobel Prize.
1906 Pierre Curie is run over by a horse-drawn carriage and tragically dies on a Parisian street. Marie’s unique marriage and happiest lifetime is destroyed in one go. Left alone with two young daughters, the widow has responsibilities that would overwhelm the strongest man but she faces her duties with greatest courage as a mother and a scientist. Despite her sorrow, she continues the work that she began with Pierre, taking especially the “Curie-therapy” they developed against cancer to great heights. But science is primarily a man’s world and Marie’s audacity is not well seen by everybody. As she embarks on passionate affair with the mathematician Paul Langevin, she provokes a huge scandal and the tabloids drag her name through the mud. Alarmed by all the malevolent headlines, the Swedish Nobel Academy, who wanted to award her a second Nobel Prize (making her the first person ever to receive two), forbids her to drive to Stockholm to fetch her award. Doesn’t a woman in love earn recognition for her work?
Incredibly talented Polish actress Karolina Gruszka is giving a thrilling performance, and the movie is also starring Charles Berling, Arieh
Worthalter, Daniel Olbrychski. A running time is 95 min. The film is in French with English subtitles.
The Curie biopic premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and played to full houses at number of prestigious international festivals, including San Francisco and Washington, DC.
