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.
Though promoted as "the true story" of William Moulton Marston, Elizabeth Marston and Olive Byrne, most of this film is speculative as the Marstons' lived their lives in privacy. At the 2017 New York Comic Con, Angela Robinson was asked by Travis Langley, a friend of the Marston family, and said that she "talked to a source who said that that was her interpretation, who had studied them. chose to tell the story as my interpretation of the story, and I think that there's a lot of facts that are indisputable about the Marstons and I feel that there's a lot that's open to interpretation. So as a filmmaker, this was my interpretation of their story." See more »
Yeah, nothing "empowering" or in the ballpark of women's liberation here. Just the opposite. As always, step BACKWARD for women, as this story suggests, we exist to entertain your lust, not exercise any strength or back bone. I saw no intelligence presented & I looked deeply to find some.
You got what is suppose to be a "true" story but let's instead throw in 2 hot actresses (than the actual 2 homely bisexuals, if they were even such). So again, let's use LESBIAN titillation to sell tix. Yet again! hey, no one's thought of that. Throw in hot blond without a brain cell & bam...you have a film! NOTHING progressive or forward-thinking about one man, TWO women. Maybe turn equation other way around & turns heads. At least change the tune for once, I'm bored!!
I don't care what the STORY really is (about some freaks but naturally sanitized to pretend they "worked" as a family. OH right!!), this is offensive use of women once again & DEVALUES "Wonder Woman" as another object for men (bondage & other negative female images), yes..THAT again, Old HAT.
And sadly, not well done. Is Hollywood trying to promote aberrant conduct? Please ASK yourself this. didn't they make it appear conflict- free, SO happy, kids all adjusted perfectly...with nice picket fence? You BETCHA.
Do NOT be fooled otherwise, nothing to celebrate here nor good reason to tell this UTTER & complete unimportant fool's story. Poor kids is ALL I can say. Sure they lived out their sad, ostracized lives in therapy.
