More About the Film

Director: Marjane Satrapi. UK. 2020. 110 mins.
Radioactive is the incredible, true story of Marie Skłodowska-Curie (Rosamund Pike) and her ground-breaking scientific achievements. In Paris, 1893, Marie meets fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley). The pair go on to marry, raise two daughters and change the face of science forever by jointly winning the Nobel Prize for the discovery of radium in 1903. Marie Curie was the first female scientist to win the esteemed prize and the first person to win the award in two different fields – Physics and Chemistry. Her work broke down many barriers in science and played a leading role in redefining women's role in society and science. She has been a role model for generations of scientists and a large amount of modern research is directly based on her activities. Perfect for Key Stage 3 Science and History students, the film will be relevant to numerous topics, including The discovery of Polonium or Radium; Women in science; Early uses of radiography; Medicine on the battlefield; Early theories of the atom; Key figures in the 20th century; The history of medicine; Atomic history; The history of women in 20th century; The history of women in science; 20th century science history.
