The film documents the journey through Marie Curie’s (Rosamund Pike) enduring legacy from the 1870s through to modern day—her passionate partnerships, scientific breakthroughs, and her enduring impact on the universe.

In late 19th century Paris, Marie met fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley). The pair went on to marry, raise two daughters and change the face of science forever, with the discovery of radioactivity.

Marie Curie, one of the most formidable and accomplished scientists of our time, was the first woman ever to win a Nobel Prize, in Physics (1903) shared with Pierre Curie (her husband) and Henri Becquerel for the discovery of the phenomenon of radioactivity. After the death of her beloved Pierre, Marie’s commitment to science remained unwavering and her work went on to win a second Nobel Prize (1911) for discoveries which would have transformative effects in the 20th century, changing our perception of matter and the universe, and leading to monumental developments from nuclear energy to treatments for cancer. 

Join us for a Live Q & A* on Saturday, July 18, 3 pm with Director Marjane Satrapi  and lead actor Rosamund Pike, to discuss the film.​ (The Q & A will be recorded and available on our chapter YouTube channel at a later date.)

Excerpt from director Marjane Satrapi:   When I read the Radioactive script, I felt that it was a very important story to tell and that I had to do it. I grew up with two role models, Marie Curie and Simone de Beauvoir. My mother wanted me to become an independent woman. It was her obsession. I did not become a philosopher or a scientist, but I managed to become an independent woman.
