The Movie tried to Profile the phenomenon of radioactivity and Marie’s Discoveries
The movie has a run time of 110 minutes. Radioactive is an exciting movie; it tries to cover both aspects of Marie Curie and her discovery. And at the same time, it also works to profile the phenomenon of radioactivity.
The movie begins with Marie Curie moves to Paris in search of funding, laboratory space and mostly respect. Marie was a brilliant, unapologetic and fierce scientist. The movie did a great job of maintaining the legitimacy of the characters and also an explanation of the science.
In most of the movies, the scientist is portrayed as nerdy and anti-social or perhaps even worse. A scientist trying to explain the concepts at a basic level to the audience somewhat shatters the illusion of realism.
But in this movie Marie and Pierre flirt with each other with compliments on each other’s publications.
The dialogues of the movie are kept vague yet understandable
The video shows some intelligent characters with a great passion for the subject. The conversation in the laboratory is kept vague. The film is filled with highlights of the events that were to come as a result of Curie’s discoveries. This adds depth and meaning to the overall plot of the movie.
However, even though the movie is based on the novel, it doesn’t always go followed the story. And added some extra dramatic scenes of its own. Overall it’s a decent movie to watch.
