The young and ambitious Maria Skłodowska (Rosamund Pike) emigrates from Poland to Paris, where she studies physics, chemistry and maths at the Sorbonne. As a young woman working in a scientific world full of men, nobody takes her very seriously until she is awarded the Nobel Prize alongside her husband Pierre Curie (Sam Riley). Adapted from Lauren Redniss’s graphic novel of the same name, Radioactive charts the life and legacy of the first person to win two Nobel Prize awards; the woman who developed the theory of radioactivity and was later known as Marie Skłodowska Curie. After its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, we are pleased to present the film’s European debut.
Followed by a Q&A with director Marjane Satrapi TBC
