Film Review: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Wonder Woman gets a real-life origin story in the bold, compassionate, sexy 'Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.'

Film Journal International

By Rebecca Pahle 

To clarify, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is less about Wonder Woman herself than the man who created her—Professor William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans)—and the two women who inspired him, wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) and their shared mistress Olive (Bella Heathcote). Though “mistress,” in this context, implies a level of seediness that wasn’t really there: William, Elizabeth and Olive were in a healthy polyamorous relationship for years. Oh, and the three of them were also into BDSM. More than that, Marston conceived Wonder Woman as no less than a tool of psychological propaganda, a way to get his ideas about bondage and the superiority of women to the masses. Did I mention that William and Elizabeth created the lie detector test?

    Having grown up with the " Wonder Woman " character I find this position of her to be really interesting. It was as I used to read them as a kid always had a sense that this character was different and always found it a very interesting read. Now reading all the latest info on "Wonder Woman" it all makes sense. Thanks
