Professor Marston & The Wonder Women

Based on a true story

Neatly timed post Wonder Woman, writer-director Angela Robinson’s drama is one eye-opening origin story. Delving into the genesis of DC Comics’ most famous female superhero, it tells of William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans), a psychologist who was inspired by his polyamorous relationship with his wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall), and student Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote) to create everyone’s favourite Amazon. While the script is structured around the ’40s scandal that threatened to engulf the comic – when regulators accused Marston of perverting young minds by filling the pages with S&M imagery – Marston’s ménage-à-trois forms the emotional stitching. Sensitively, Robinson avoids titillation to depict the trio as loving partners and parents. Evans is robust as Marston, Hall sharp as Elizabeth and Heathcote luminous as Olive. How it feeds into Wonder Woman – right down to her bracelets – is fascinating, providing an unexpected peek at the blueprint for a feminist icon. Courtesy: James Mottram, Total Film
