Marie Curie: The Courage Of Knowledge

of Marie Noelle with Karolina Gruszka, Arieh Worthalter, Charles Berling, Izabela Kuna

2D

n 1906, Pierre Curie is run over by a horse-drawn carriage and tragically dies on a Parisian street. Marie’s unique marriage and happy life is destroyed all at once. Left alone with two young daughters, the widow has responsibilities that would overwhelm the strongest man, but she faces her duties as a mother and a scientist with the greatest courage. Despite her sorrow, she continues the work that she began with Pierre, taking especially the “Curie-therapy” they developed against cancer to great heights. But science is primarily a man’s world and Marie’s audacity is not accepted by everybody. As she embarks on a passionate affair with fellow scientist Paul Langevin, she provokes a huge scandal and the tabloids drag her name through the mud. Alarmed by all the malevolent headlines, the Swedish Nobel Academy, who wanted to award her a second Nobel Prize (making her the first person ever to receive two), forbids her to drive to Stockholm to fetch her award. Doesn’t a woman in love deserve recognition for her work?
