From the 1870s through to modern day, Radioactive is a journey through Marie Curie’s (Academy Award-nominee Rosamund Pike) enduring legacies – her passionate partnerships, scientific breakthroughs, and the consequences that follow.

In late 19th century Paris, Marie met fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley). The pair went on to marry, raised two daughters and changed the face of science forever by their discovery of radioactivity. In 1903, the pair jointly won the Nobel Prize in physics for their discovery, making Marie the first woman to win the esteemed prize.

After the death of her beloved Pierre, Marie’s commitment to science remained unwavering and her work went on to win her a second Nobel Prize, taking with it the responsibility for discoveries which changed the world. This is a bold, visionary depiction of a legacy of an extraordinary life, the transformative effects and ensuing fallout of the Curie’s work and an exploration of how this impacted the defining moments of the 20th Century.Radioactive is a cutting-edge historical drama which delves deeply into Marie Curie’s life and the aftermath of her discoveries from the Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis).

The screening on Thu 23 April at 8.30pm has descriptive English language subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing. All are welcome at these screenings.
