Storyline

Details the unconventional life of Dr. William Marston, the Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941. Marston was in a polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor in her own right, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academic. This relationship was key to the creation of Wonder Woman, as Elizabeth and Olive's feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Marston died of skin cancer in 1947, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their and Marston's children together. The film is said to focus on how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman's creation.

Quotes

Brant Gregory: Path to peace is not through finance or politics it is to solve the problems of man's heart. Can't solve war by simply studying men's feelings.
William Moulton Marston: Of course, you're right. Men's minds are far too limited. That's why we need women.

Brilliant!

Brilliant writing and directing. The acting is to be as praised as well. I do not know how much of the actual truth is presented in the movie, but it was a very smart portrayal of how wonder woman came to be and what she has represented all alone
