Professor Marston and the Wonder Women
Dir. Angela Robinson
USA 2017 (108:00)
This year, we experienced the rebirth of Wonder Woman and witnessed a powerful female superhero smash the summer box office. But how much do we really know about Wonder Woman and her origin? Enter: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, the true story of the bisexual polyamorous threesome that inspired the comic books.
As feminist academics working in the 1920s, William (Luke Evans) and Elizabeth Marston (Rebecca Hall) are ahead of their time in many ways. When research assistant Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote) enters their orbit, this becomes even more true. As ideas flow between the three so too does flirtation, blossoming into a romance that sees the trio embark on a relationship that will change their lives forever. Pushing the boundaries in their studies and in their lives, their relationship inspires William to write a character missing from the world he wants to live in: Wonder Woman.
Expertly directed by filmmaker Angela Robinson (D.E.B.S., The L Word) and boasting a stellar cast, the film and the Wonder Women involved will wrap their golden lassos around your heart like it did ours.
Official Selection, TIFF 2017
