The got me in the seats because of Wonder Woman, but I stayed because it was a unique movie about love.

I had a feeling that the title was propaganda to get me into the seats. After all, Wonder Woman was one of 2017's best pictures, so I figure the title of this movie (as well as the well done poster) was a way to get butts into the seats. Not that I want my money back, cause it was an excellent movie. It was lots of fun and it made me chuckle a lot of times, but if your here because you want to learn more about Wonder Woman, the movie is not designed like that specifically.

What I knew about William Marston before was that he created Wonder Woman (right!),the same guy who created Wonder Woman created the lie detector test (But the movie does point out how much his wife contributed to this) and that the original Wonder Woman comics was filled with images of bonding and S&M (Which according to the movie visualized Marston's theories on human behavior) . What I did not know is that this guy was in a three way relationship with his wife and one of his students. This part of the movie seems to take center stage above anything else.

Once again ,I'm not complaining, cause it made for one of the most interesting love stories I've ever seen. Not really into romance movies, and you can make an argument that it's not, but what stands out for me in this film is a story about three people trying to be in a loving relationship with one another in a world that's still not really ready for what is going on here. So, it was a romance film done differently, under a mask of  the drama and the biography( How very Superhero-like of them).

the sexual perversions of Wonder Woman

In 1928 Radcliffe Colleges, William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) is a professor with his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall). They are taken with beautiful student Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote) and recruit her as a test subject. She's the daughter and niece of prominent liberated women despite being left to be raised by nuns. They develop a complicated family group as well as create the lie detector and comic book icon Wonder Woman. In 1945, Marston is interrogated by Josette Frank of the Child Study Association of America as Wonder Woman comics are burned publicly.

This is a fantastical tale of the true origins of Wonder Woman. It's a more adult fare comparable to the TV show Masters of Sex. The movie would work better to explain the sexual climates of the 20s to the 40s. A little more exposition would set up the their outsider relationship. It also clashes with the family-friendly modern comic book franchises. It is more adventurous than even the needs of a puritan sexuality of movie comics. A better title would be Sexual Perversions of Wonder Woman but that would drive away the kiddie crowd that races to the modern comic book movies. There is a conflict between the real subjects and the reality of the PG-13 franchises. Surprisingly, there is real heart in these characters and this movie delivers real conflicts.

I Wonder

This movie concerns the lives of William Moulton Marston, best remembered as the creator of Wonder Woman (played by Luke Evans),his wife Elizabeth (played by Rebecca Hall),and their polyamorous relationship with Olive Byrne (played by Bella Heathcote) over the years through Moulton's death in 1947.

It's well acted and well intentioned, but like many movies of its sort, it plays havoc with reality to make its subtextual points. Not only are terms misused -- there was no OSS in the First World War -- but Marston did not invent the polygraph, but only a component used in that fraudulent device.

Defenders of the movie will say that these are not issues, that the term was used for audiences to know what is going on, and that the polygraph plays an important part in the story. The last is true enough, but in fictionalizing reality to make a point, you lose a certain moral high ground. You can't say this is what really happened. Two obvious falsehoods open the possibility of others, and you cannot prove a conclusion from a false premise.
