Eppler: Catch up with 2017's best movie

"Professor Marston and the Wonder Women" is party the origin story of the Wonder Woman character, created by Harvard psychology professor William Marston (Luke Evans), who saw an opportunity to promote his theories about domination, submission and other inter-personal dynamics in a different way.

But the real interest of this movie is the inspiration for Wonder Woman - the real women in Marston's life: his wife (Rebecca Hall) and a student (Bella Heathcote). 

As the three worked to perfect Marston's invention of the lie detector, a romance developed between them. At its core, this movie is an unconventional love story - deeply romantic, intelligently erotic and surprising.

All three lead performances are excellent, but Hall deserved an Oscar consideration especially. Unfortunately, Oscar voters, like most of the public, did not see this movie. That's the fault of the studio not promoting it better. 

This beautiful and thoughtful movie is written and directed by Angela Robinson, whose last movie to direct was the Lindsay Lohan "Herbie" movie. (I know, I couldn't believe it, either). But here, she has announced herself as a real talent to watch by telling a delicate and emotional story that's a real wonder, indeed.
