If you’ve ever wondered about the origins of Wonder Woman – the character that is, and her comics – the facts may surprise you.
Talk about an interesting story! Polyamorous Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) and his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) formed a relationship with former student Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote), with the love triangle and its members’ feminist ideals ultimately leading to the creation of Wonder Woman in 1941.
The film also looks at the storm of protest over the character, who possessed many of the kinkier elements of the trio’s relationship in a time that just wasn’t ready for them.
This is a fascinating and insightful biopic, anchored by strong performances and chemistry from the three leads, and full of unexpected insights into the character of Diana.
