About this event

From the 1870s to the modern era, this is a journey through Marie Curie’s (Rosamund Pike) enduring legacies: her passionate relationships, scientific breakthroughs, and the consequences that followed for her and for the world.

After meeting fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley), the pair go on to marry and change the face of science forever by their discovery of radioactivity. The genius of the Curies’ world-changing discoveries and the ensuing Nobel Prize propels the devoted couple into the international limelight.

But it soon becomes terrifyingly evident that their work could lead to applications in medicine that could save thousands of lives – as well as applications in warfare that could destroy them by the billions.

Presented in partnership with the Embassy of Hungary
