“Marie Curie” tells the story of the pioneering researcher and the tragic death of her husband Pierre Curie, as well as her struggle as a woman in a male-dominated world of science.
The film’s director, France’s Marie Noelle, told a press conference in Warsaw that she wanted to show the human side of Skłodowska-Curie: a tender mother, loving wife and a woman who followed her heart.
“I wanted to show… how independent she was in her work, in her way of thinking,” Noelle added.
In the film, Curie is played by Polish actress Karolina Gruszka.
The cast includes top Polish actors Iza Kuna, Piotr Głowacki, Jan Frycz and Daniel Olbrychski.
The movie by is a co-production by Poland, Germany, France and Belgium.
