About the Movie
In an era when women were allowed to be ornaments, mothers or drudges, young Marie Sklodowska of Poland dreamed of something more. She defied convention to study physics and mathematics at the Sorbonne and – with Pierre Curie, the professor who became her husband – to make one of the greatest breakthroughs in 20th-century science. Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon reunite after their Mrs. Miniver triumph to portray the courageous couple who won the 1903 Nobel Prize for their discovery of radium. This stirring biopic captures the challenge of research, the triumph of achievement and the profound bond of love they shared. Madame Curie is "a lasting inspiration [that] makes the quest for knowledge aromantic and thrilling pursuit" (Bosley Crowther).
A Hidden Gem
Nominated for 7 Academy Awards and well deserving of each nomination. Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon put on a movie for the ages with one of the most beautifully orchestrated film scores I have ever listened to. An underrated classic in filmmaking!
