Storyline

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.

Goofs

In a scene set in the 1920's, Prof. Marston says that he was "in the OSS" during World War I. But the OSS didn't exist until 1942. In the twenties, "in the OSS" would have been meaningless. See more »

There really should be laws against doing this to real people!
23 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Even if they like it, like Joy Mangano liked the fictional movie about herself. None of the stuff in it actually happened to Joy. She was a huge hit right off the bat, so 3/4's of the movie has her struggling with added dramatic BS! In her very first appearance she sold more product than anybody in history! I also hated Cobb, which took all sorts of poetic license with Cobbs reputation, and was written by a guy Al Stump, who really, really was a back stabbing scoundrel, just go to a sports memorabilia show and start throwing his name around and prepare to get screamed at by the tens of thousands of people Al Stump screwed over with fake stuff! Here's the problem, they make a false, fake movie, idiots think it's gospel. Cobb was an Archie Bunker type, who lived in a time when black people couldn't drink out of the same fountains as white people! People know about his opinions because he was by far the biggest star baseball player when he lived, so he was interviewed constantly. The movie literally made it seem like he was the only person with racism in the 50's. And also made it seem a guy confined to a wheelchair was running around doing all sorts of crazy stuff 6 months before he died.

I'm very familiar with this particular movies subject matter. Early Wonder Women comic did indeed contain a lot of erotic bondage. The thing they're not mentioning is that a lot of other comics did too! Literally half the comics on the shelves each month had a woman tied up on the cover! They're taking the Wonder Women stuff and implanting their own wild fantasies about what it must all mean.

There's even scenes with this made up proto Comic Book Authority coming after them, that didn't happen until well after Marstons death. But having it around during his life made the story seem more real.

There is no, Zero proof, of any of this kinky stuff in Marstons life. Therefore the family should be able to sue the producers and the distributors into oblivion.

This kind of revisionist history is everywhere. I just watched a mini series about Howard Carters finding King Tuts tomb and wow, they made Carter 30 years younger, and having an affair with Lord Carnarvon's daughter! Ridiculous.

In this case the two women were lifelong best friends, that's pretty much it. They lived together after Marstons death to save money and try to raise 4 children.

And some scumbag decided to make a soft core porno out of these peoples lives. I hope the family wins Billions! Not only this travesty of justice, but the movie sucked ass! It's like watching A high school drama and all the understudies are performing.

Read through the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and you'll see that a lot of the professional reviewers felt obligated to give it higher rating. Because they like the anything goes lifestyle.
