For this Women’s History Month, I have decided to focus on creating some top ten lists which discuss films, biopics and documentaries about women in history that will hopefully inspire and inform readers about the accomplishments of women throughout history. For this piece I am focusing on ten women who deserve their own biopics and will be discussing who I think should star in the film, who could possibly direct the film and why their stories deserve to be seen on the big screen.

There have been many successful films based on comic books or graphic novels, but “Radioactive” is something completely different.

We now live in a time where it seems like every major studio has its own streaming service. This can be great for those who like to pick and choose specifically what they want to watch, but if you want to have it all, it can cost you a pretty penny. Over the past couple of years I’ve become

This historical drama directed by Marjane Satrapi follows Marie Curie from her discovery of radium and polonium to her death in 1934. It merges a range of historical time periods in a blended visual style which leans on its graphic novel roots. It may not work for some but is certainly bold.
We meet Marie as Maria Skłodowska (Rosamund Pike), a Polish immigrant living in Paris and “taking up too much space” in a shared laboratory. She is informed by a roomful of men that she is being kicked out and she must find another if she wants to continue her scientific endeavours. Continue reading GFF Exclusive Review: Radioactive
Iranian-born French filmmaker Marjane Satrapi’s body of work in film could so far be counted on one hand, and one would still have a digit to spare.
