Saturday Afternoon at the Movies – Radioactive (2020)

Saturday, October 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Members & guests–free on Amazon Prime. To RSVP, please scroll down. Registered attendees will then receive an email the day before the discussion with a link to join via Zoom.

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Radioactive is the incredible, true-story of Marie Skłodowska Curie and her ground-breaking scientific achievements that revolutionized medicine with her discovery of radium and polonium, ultimately changing the face of science forever. Marie was the first female to win the Nobel Prize and the first person in history to win the esteemed award twice. Oscar-nominated Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) directs this dazzling cast, which includes Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, A United Kingdom) as Marie with Sam Riley (Control) playing her beloved husband and Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk) as her lover, Paul; rising star Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) also stars, playing the young Irene, Marie Curie’s daughter. Village member Mary Ann Schwartz will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
