(US) Director: Angela Robinson. Cast: Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, Connie Britton, Oliver Platt.
There are two big questions swirling around the women-friendly blockbuster, this summer’s Wonder Woman: can a superhero movie ever get an Oscar nomination for Best Picture? And who was the original creator behind this exciting, mold-exploding character? We donĂ­t have any inside information on the Oscars, but this super new film reveals a story that few know. Created as a feminist (and fetishist) role model for kids in the 1940s by Harvard psychology professor William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman/Diana Prince was inspired by the two strong and unconventional women in a three way polyamorous relationship: Martson’s psychologist wife Elizabeth, and his research assistant Olive Byrne. An OUTFilm CT Second Thursdays presentation! 108 min.
“a nice tribute not only to one of the comics’ greatest characters but the sort of truly uncensored imagination that makes all fiction possible — and all love real.” Stephen Whitty, Newark Star Ledger.
