Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (15)

Biography, Drama

The story of psychologist William Moulton Marston, the polyamorous relationship between his wife and his mistress, the creation of his beloved comic book character Wonder Woman, and the controversy the comic generated.

The critical consensus

Empowering and entertaining story about the creator of Wonder Woman, from Angela Robinson.

****(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 06/11/2017

The lesser of 2017’s two Wonder Woman movies, this attempt to explore a complex three-sided relationship is let down by bland storytelling.

**(*)(*)(*)Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online, 06/11/2017

Although presenting all this in the form of a run-of-the-mill biopic makes thematic sense given the way Marston tried to advance his progressive politics via comic books, that doesn’t stop it being a little dull to watch.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 08/11/2017

Charismatic performances just about stave off post-coital malaise.

***(*)(*)Ben Nicholson, Little White Lies, 09/11/2017

The film is a dry biopic with clunky dialogue and actors who are far more glamorous than their real-life counterparts.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 10/11/2017

Behind the wholesome saver of planets in the Marvel film, there was a man with some strange ideas on love and sex.
