[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (October 13,2017)

Director Angela Robinson
Writer Angela Robinson
Cinematography Bryce Fortner
Cast Luke Evens, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote

This story is about Professor Marston, played by Luke Evans, and his creation of Wonder Woman. Not only the creation of Wonder Woman, but a love story between three central characters: William Moulton Marston, Elizabeth Marston (played by Rebecca Hall) and Olive Byrne (played by Bella Heathcote). Before I start my review I want to say Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman is not meant for everyone. If you get easily offended or not a fan of same sex relationships this film is not for you.

Angela Robinson did a fantastic job Directing/Writing Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. This film isn’t one-hundred percent accurate, but the story she told was both engaging and heart-pounding. I can almost guarantee some people came out of the theatre thinking how perverted this film was. Just like the character Josette Frank (played by Connie Britton) was.  In the words of Professor Marston.

“An erotic component is necessary. How else is submission supposed to be pleasurable? I am teaching readers to submit to a loving authority, and that submission is pleasurable. Young boys must learn this most of all if they are to grow up respecting powerful women.”

This film isn’t truly about sex or being dominated, maybe on the surface, but this film is truly about respecting one another.

Lets talk about the characters. When we first meet Professor Marston, Elizabeth (his wife) and Olive (his student) they all had their own identity. Professor Marston always had  respect for women and wanted to spread his ideas to everyone else, but he was obsessive he took things to the extreme and sometimes made the others feel uncomfortable. Elizebeth was the smart one, she always thought logically, but because of that she was the stubborn one and tried to drive everyone away. Olive was kind hearted, but she didn’t really know what she truly wanted and was never honest with herself. Throughout Professor Marston and the Wonder Women they all learn to support each with their strengths even though the whole world was against them. 

Overall this film is a huge success and I am very disappointed in myself that didn’t watch this when it came out. There is a lot to love in Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, but if their is any flaws I would say that it can get little uncomfortable, which I think that was what Angela Robison was going for, and there were some scene that were a little long. These were just nit picks to me so I will give Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.  (9.0/10)[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
