Reviews


83
The Film Stage - Jared Mobarak
While Robinson’s film does fall into the usual trappings of biopic beats, its subject can’t help but transcend them.
75
IndieWire - Kate Erbland
Evans, Hall, and Heathcote exhibit major chemistry (in every permutation) possible, but they also don’t wink at the storyline, playing a provocative story totally straight.
70
The Hollywood Reporter - Deborah Young
Many rough edges are smoothed by the strong acting and well-done tech work.
70
ScreenCrush - Matt Singer
In a way, though, Robinson’s less-edgy aesthetic is even more subversive than graphic sexuality. By treating the Marstons’ lovemaking the same way arthouse movies have treated heterosexual couples for decades, she refuses to portray them as aberrant or abnormal.
67
Consequence of Sound - Sarah Kurchak
Angela Robinson, who wrote and directed the film, has managed to take what could have been a tawdry or salacious look into Wonder Woman’s naughty roots and give her real-life characters – and their genuine love for each other – the same amount of respect that any vanilla, monogamous heterosexual historical figure would receive.
