Rather lurid biopic of the Professors that invented the lie detector and how it led them to Wonder Woman.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Written by: Angela Robinson

Directed by: Angela Robinson

Starring: Rebecca Hall, Luke Evans, Bella Heathcote, Connie Britton, Oliver Platt,

Rated R
Running time: 96 Mins

A Professor and his wife explore the many facets of the human experience, parts of which get them in a lot of trouble, which leads to some fun and, maybe, some insight for us to assay.

No doubt about it, this was worth the trip to the theater. Good performances all around and enough (rather kinky) sexiness to make this a good date movie; leave the kids at home. The way this is narrated is a trifle clumsy, but as a period piece, it really shines in spite of that. It’s a little heavy-handed on the feminism at times, but that might be because of the time period it has to contend with.

However, watching Wonder Woman start to come together was pretty awesome.

For me, the real star here was Rebecca Hall

A great postscript to the earlier release of Wonder Woman this year, I’ll recommend this one. No post credit scenes.

Flytrap rating: 7.5/10
