Biopic of Marie Curie (Pike), the double Nobel Prize-winning scientist who discovered radium and polonium. Pike is compelling as Marie, as is Riley as her fellow scientist and future husband, but the attempts to contextualise their achievement are clumsy and amateurish. A missed opportunity.

Rosamund Pike rises above Marjane Satrapi's disappointing Marie Curie biopic

On paper, a biopic about Marie Curie reads like an excellent idea. The double Nobel Prize-winning scientist, whose discoveries of radium and polonium were instrumental in the fight against cancer, certainly merits the big screen treatment.
