Pioneer. Genius. Rebel.

'Intriguing', 'flawed', 'provocative'; the critics are split on this English biopic.

Most agree however, that Rosamund Pike's potrayal of Marie Curie is very compelling. From the 1870s through our 21st century, RADIOACTIVE tells the story of pioneering scientist Marie Curie (Rosamund Pike) through her extraordinary life and her enduring legacies - the passionate partnerships, her shining scientific breakthroughs, and the darker consequences that followed.

After the death of her beloved husband, Marie Curie's commitment to science remains strong as she tries to explain previously unknown radioactive elements. But it soon becomes terrifyingly evident that her work could lead to applications in medicine that could save thousands of lives -- or applications in warfare that could destroy them by the billions.

"Satrapi collapses a century of innovation and destruction from the discovery of chemotherapy to Chernobyl into a flat timeline that Curie can see right through as though looking at an x-ray. In those moments of stylistic imagination, the film glows." - Amy Nicholson, Variety
