A sweeping biographical film about the first woman to win the Nobel Prize, Marie Curie: The Courage of Knowledge is as much an intimate portrayal of the struggles of the scientist’s private world as of her legendary public accomplishments, chronicling her battles against the male academic establishment, as well as her blissful marriage to her scientific partner, Pierre.

Director Marie Noelle vividly depicts turn-of-the-century Europe in this portrait of the brilliant Polish-born woman who, at the age of 24, moved to Paris and launched her scientific career.
