Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him.
Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston (Rebecca Hall) and their lover Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote), two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behaviour research — while building a hidden life with him that rivalled the greatest of superhero disguises.
A nice companion piece to one of the biggest Superhero movies of 2017, and a great movie in its own right. Wonder Woman also stars in Justice League.
