Una interesante mirada critica sobre las convenciones sexuales en la Norteámerica de los años 40, centrada en el peculiar ménage à trois entre la joven Olive Byrne y los esposos Elizabeth y William Marston, éste último, creador de la Mujer Maravilla. La ironia es ver que algunos de los más importantes postulados del Dr. Marston respecto a su personaje, fueron eliminados de la muy exitosa película de Patty Jenkins.
This is a brilliant film that perfectly captures a complex story and gives a lot of insight into human sexuality and emotions and how art can be a therapeutic reflection of ourselves and serve as a strong voice to educate people on the ways of the world and how things should be all while battling those who oppose it merely because they fear what they don't understand.
An intellectual soap-opera I found myself unapologetically invested in from the opening minutes. Destined to be ignored in theaters only to go on to be unearthed and supported by many, "Professor Marston & the Wonder Women" is a sturdy, detail-oriented biopic about the sexuality and psychological roots of the most iconic female superhero. Rebecca Hall gives one of the best performances of the year to boot.
Great!!! And it just makes the super heroine movie seem mild, harmless and out of sync with today's politics. Sadly, today's Wonder Woman seems tame. To reduce her to "finally[?] a female super heroine lead" is almost heartbreaking. There is so much more about gender and sexuality and roles and feminism that could be dealt with.
Professor Marston & The Wonderwomen é tipo uma novela televisiva ancorada em acontecimentos reais para afirmar o ~amor~. Parecia clichê no decorrer do filme, mas no final fiquei bem feliz com o resultado.
A great movie about the life of Professor Marston. Director Angela Robinson succeed to show how great Professor Marston was as a genius and his life as an ondinary man. PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN also tells about the two women in his life who led him made a Wonder Woman comicbook. Somehow, I always feel this movie is about feminism. Maybe because the way Marston glorified his women...
