PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN is based on the extraordinary true story of the creator of one of the most iconic super heroes ever conceived, and the seductive secret life he kept from his fans. Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans, Beauty and the Beast) was roundly criticized for the creation of his feminist superhero, but it was his personal life, with his polyamorous relationship with his wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall, The Gift) and their lover, Olive (Bella Heathcote), that was more provocative than any adventure he had ever written.

Not into polyamory? Breathe, BREATHE ye lesbians and all ye other freaked out monogamous phenomena... this is more than tastefully done. Not your usual man-centered vomity crudeness. This here is written and directed with a woman's touch. A queer woman's touch. And it shows. Openly queer Angela Robinson also wrote/directed D.E.B.S. and was involved with The L Word. Other credible credits but, imo, this is her best work thus far. Four years to write it and another four just trying to get it made... this is not a shallow effort. Robinson was wise enough to anchor the emotional landscape between these two women, which really softens and authenticates their whole poly dynamic. Luke Evans (also openly queer, btw), who plays Marston, a psychologist/professor with a phd from Harvard, is a class act who never overwhelms any scene with obnoxious testosterone. Ick-factor removed.
Very intriguing look at a very loving and functional connection between 3 brilliant, charismatic, and unique people who all manage to complement and balance each other out. Add the whole development of the Lie Detector Test (yes, they invented it) and the Wonder Woman origin story here and how so much of their personal lives shaped the initial WW comics-- not to mention their interest in BDSM (you'll never see WW's truth lasso the same after this lol)... and you have a very, very fascinating and original story here. The epitome of truth being stranger than fiction. Gee, who woulda guessed the original WW comics were sooooo intentionally full of bondage...

Es gibt kein einfaches Richtig und Falsch, sondern den ständigen Versuch das Leben im menschlichen Miteinander, Toleranz und Achtung voreinander zu leben und zu lieben.
Der Film und das Leben der Personen ist eine Bereicherung für mich!
