Interesting back story about the comic Wonder Woman, that I’ve never read, and the people involved in it’s creation. Certainly an interesting life style at the time for two women and Professor Marston's choice of a blended family. Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) and his wife Elizabeth Marston (Rebecca Hall) invented the polygraph. Who knew? I did think it was odd that the characters never got older, just different hairstyles. Whatever.
I’ve seen Rebecca Hall in several films and think she is very talented.

I have to admit upfront, I have no idea why someone thought this story had to be told as a movie. My guess is that the success of the recent WW movie got the concept for this movie sold. Actors are good but the whole thing comes off as wannabe hip. A "meh" overall.
