Read the full synopsis

Full film details

It’s 1928 and Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) and his fellow psychologist wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) are doing everything they can to leave a lasting legacy. Between them, they invent the modern day lie detector test, however failure to patent their product prevents them from reaping the benefits.

And, with Professor Marston’s writing career stalling and Elizabeth having to constantly deal with sexism in society, the pair become somewhat frustrated. But, when they strike up a polyamorous relationship with a young student named Olive (Bella Heathcote) their risqué antics lead to the creation of one of the 20th centuries most iconic characters.

Turning his hand to writing comic books, Professor Marston creates Wonder Woman, whose strong female identity is inspired by Elizabeth and Olive and their liberated and forward-thinking version of femininity. The character proves to be a hit, however the strong sexual themes and tones which run through the plot lines attracts the attention of the censors and Marston is hauled in for a grilling.

Just how long can this unconventional family continue to live a lie?

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women recounts the remarkable and rarely told true story behind one of the world’s favourite superheroes. Directed by Angela Robinson (True Blood), the film features a talented cast that sizzle with chemistry.

Luke Evans takes on the role of Dr. Marston, having recently appeared in Beauty and the Beast (2017) and The Girl on the Train (2016). The brilliant Rebecca Hall (Holmes and Watson) plays Elizabeth, while Bella Heathcote (Fifty Shades Darker) plays Olive.
