Timed perfectly with the 100th anniversary of Madame Curie's second Nobel Prize as well as the first International
Year of Chemistry, Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie delves into the life and romance of one of the most
brilliant female scientists in history.
Famous for her groundbreaking research in radioactivity, Curie was the only
person ever to win two Nobel Prizes in multiple sciences, but not without a struggle. For all the answers that come to
her in the lab, Curie's life is peppered with questions of how to realize the passion she has for both knowledge and
love. Celebrated but then rejected by the popular press as both a woman and scientist, Curie is left to define her
place in society - and history - on her own terms.
Radiance is written by acclaimed actor Alan Alda.
