RADIOACTIVE movie review

RADIOACTIVE movie poster

Janet's TAKE: In #RadioactiveMovie, Rosamund Pike's brilliant portrayal of Marie Curie is hindered by a slow, meandering screenplay that confusingly jumps between past and present. Grade/C

Madame Curie's interesting personal life takes a backseat to her struggles for funding and acceptance in the science community. While at times compelling, the film suffers from uneven direction.
