In 1903, the Polish scientist Marie Sklodowska Curie became the first woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics, along with her French husband Pierre Curie. Shortly afterwards, the young mother lost her husband in an accident. She nonetheless decided to continue her work in this male-dominated field on her own. She became the first woman (and foreign woman at that) to be offered a professorial chair at the Sorbonne in Paris. When Marie falls in love with her married colleague Paul Langevin and begins an affair with him, a ferocious scandal is the result. Just as she is about to receive her second Nobel prize, on the urging of Langevin's vengeful wife the Paris press accuse her of adultery. She learns how incompatible rationale and passion are. Marie Curie is a fascinating biopic with an extremely impressive Karolina Gruszka in the title role.
