The film makes the unfolding romance feel natural and unassuming

What makes Professor Marston And The Wonder Woman truly fascinating is the way it manages to normalise a three-way relationship. The film makes the unfolding romance feel natural, and unassuming, ideas that polygamy is almost never paired with.

With his comic in danger of extreme regulation, Professor Marston (Luke Evans) must argue the case for Wonder Woman’s importance against the ever-growing suspicions about hidden adult themes within his books. As his story unfolds, it is clear that multiple women within his life have a huge impact on Wonder Woman’s personality.

The period piece flows elegantly as it attempts to show how normal these people were when putting their relationship aside. It is one of the more alarming situations, dealt with terribly by society, but one that showcases perfectly how easy it is to keep a deep secret.

Often the film seamlessly flows between interview and storyline, as it shows the links between Wonder Woman and Marston’s real life. It’s a great asset, that compliments the strong performances and distinct direction.

Professor Marston And The Wonder Woman is one of those stories that makes one wonder why it’s never been told before.

4/5
