French director Marjane Satrapi with a scripted adapted from the book Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout. The movie is less a biopic and more about learning about who Marie Curie was as a person and not just her accolades as a scientists.

"Marie Curie was such a natural force of life. everybody, everywhere she went was effected by her energy and brilliance," said Satrapi. "This is an intense role which require a lot of intelligence and sensibility. Rosamund is 'the one' to play her. I understood it the second I met her."

The book is known as a "visual biography" in that it's not quite a graphic novel but there are drawings and the use of color throughout the book.
