PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN
A Multi-Faceted Experience
"America's going to love the Marston's," says writer/director Angela Robinson.
"I really think
the actors brought incredible joy and chemistry and heart to the story. We
engage with these
unique people and learn a great deal about them."
Apart from the historical aspects, says Rebecca Hall, the film is very
entertaining. "It's going to
make you really laugh and cry. It has a richness of feeling that I think people
crave when they go
out to the movies."
Additionally, says Bella Heathcote, the film is relatable to contemporary
audiences. "It's a story
about people trying to figure out who they are and what their place is, and who
can't relate to
that? It's also a beautiful love story and you watch these people grow and
change over time. You
see them struggle with their relationships and careers and their sense of self
and emerge better at
the end of it. I think audiences will be very satisfied with that journey."

should never be put down by anyone. Marston created something special, which

As for the Wonder Woman origin aspects of the film, "I think people are going to
Woman in a completely different light after they've seen this movie," says
Redford. "They're going to be amazed at how this iconic character emerged from
real life. And
even if they have no particular attachment to Wonder Woman, they all have a
family, a history,
and a knowledge of the battles that women faced in the past, and even today.
There are so many
different ways to experience this movie."
For Luke Evans, the movie tells the origin story with depth and resonance. "It's
moment to tell the story of how Wonder Woman came to be. You see, there's a
Wonder Woman has withstood the test of time. She represents female strength and
women can have. She's different from Superman or Batman. She possesses
energies and techniques that men fail at, miserably so. She doesn't use her
super powers to
defeat. She uses them to make people tell the truth."
In conclusion, Robinson believes that Professor Marston & The Wonder Women has
of importance to impart to audiences. "It's a powerful message about the nature
of love and
acceptance and having the courage to be who you are. Wonder Woman's mission is
violence, to stop war and to stand for peace. That's what I took away from the
experience and I
hope that's what everyone takes away."
