Prices Vary

Polish actress Karolina Gruszka stars in this sweeping biography of the legendary, Nobel Prize–winning physicist and chemist. Curie courted controversy with both her challenging of France’s male-dominated academic establishment and her unconventional romantic life. Physicist, chemist, and pioneer in the study of radioactivity, Curie spent her life setting precedents. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize and the first person to win it twice. Director Marie Noëlle conjures turn-of-the-century Europe with camerawork whose restless precision is an analogue of the brilliant scientist's mind.
