Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

This was a fascinating story with so many pieces to it: the creation of Wonder Woman, the controversy surrounding her themes, the unconventional throuple relationship between the creator and two women, the psychology of dominance and submission, the invention of the lie detector. All of that somehow fit into one movie, and it all flowed rather well.

Okay, I usually use the second paragraph of my posts to explain the plot, but really it's everything I said in the intro. Luke Evans is Professor Marston. Rebecca Hall is his wife. Bella Heathcote is their lover. Three fantastic performances. More substance than we've seen from Evans, and the best role Hall has had in years.

The structure of the story works incredibly well to keep things interesting while juggling all those different threads. The timing is also great, coming in off the heels of Wonder Woman and getting a glimpse at the wonder women that inspired her. It's really a cool opportunity to see how these two films go hand in gold bracelet-ed hand.
