Wow. This movie was something. Tells the story of Professor Marston, his wife, and their mistress as he is inspired to write and create Wonder Woman. The film touches on many aspects that were very controversial back then (some still are now, but humans are more open minded these days). Honestly, the whole thing kind of shocked me, but the way that the film flowed from start to finish was great.
I loved the history behind the Wonder Woman comics, how they were put on the banned list due to content and the meanings behind Marston's pictures and brutality. I thought the three leading characters, Evans, Hall, and Heathcote had great chemistry. Though I can't imagine having feelings like they did for each other, for the most part they were a married threesome with a family, it was nice to watch them as a family because of the love that was evident between them.
Of course being a dramatic movie, they had to throw in the controversy and closed-mindedness of their neighbors and other acquaintances throughout the movie. I also loved how with each thing that happened along the way, I could see Wonder Woman coming to life through Olive in the brains of Marston.
The film itself had a feel like one that would be part of a film festival... which I think it was and is why I knew about it from the start and has been on my watchlist ever since. I'm going to go with a "liked it" for this movie. It's an interesting biography to watch and it isn't boring like some other ones I've seen are. I'd suggest you give it a chance if you don't mind girl on girl on guy on girl action. (4/5).
