Marie Curie, the Courage of Knowledge

Discover the life of Marie Skłodowska-Curie, the famous award winning female scientist, struggling for the recognition of her work in a world dominated by men.

The film covers six years of her life and begins in 1905, just before the death of her husband Pierre Curie, and between her two Nobel Prizes. It depicts her work, the xenophobia from the French press and misogyny she suffered from the scientific community, but also shows another aspect of her life: the scandalous extramarital relationship she had with Paul Langevin, an ex-student of her deceased husband.
