Details the unconventional life of Dr. William Marston, the Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941. Marston was in a polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor in her own right, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academic. This relationship was key to the creation of Wonder Woman, as Elizabeth and Olive's feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Marston died of skin cancer in 1947, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their and Marston's children together. The film is said to focus on how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman's creation.
First, I must confess that I am little acquainted with the Wonder Woman
comic books. I loved the Wonder Woman series with Lynda Carter and I
absolutely loved and am obsessed with the movie starring Gal Gadot. I
watched this movie at once because I was curious about the background
of the comic book author and because it stars two actors I really
admire, Luke Evans and Rebecca Hall. I was pleasantly surprised at how
much I enjoyed this movie. The pacing was right, I felt, for the story.
I loved how the story was about him but the main focus was always,
rightly so, on the two amazing and powerful women who shaped Wonder
Woman as much as they influence and shaped the man who created the
character from what he saw as the best of both women. The nudity/love
scenes in this movie were not graphic and were done, again, my opinion,
tastefully and with reverence to the story. I highly recommend this
movie to everyone. I loved Wonder Woman before, I now understand why.
