Maria Skłodowska-Curie: Interesting, worth seeing for people interested in her.
5 March 2017 | by WarsawTCSee all my reviews

I found the film interesting. I generally knew about Maria Skłodowska-Curie (she was a Pole, born and raised in Warsaw). I knew nothing about her personal life in Paris, which is the focus of this film.

The film looks more at her personal life and the large challenges she faced being a woman (and mother of two) in a Man's World. Worth seeing.
