Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 108 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

Based on the true story of Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston, his wife, and their girlfriend.  The movie depicts the creation and development of Wonder Woman partly through Marston's wildly progressive for the era championing of women, and partly through kinks, notably light bondage, which the three explored.  (Allegedly.  Living family members claim it's all nonsense.)

There are some really beautiful well shot erotic scenes in this without resorting to nudity, and the three primary characters do their roles well.  Kind of sad nobody's going to this.  Even sadder to think a good chunk of people championing this year's "Wonder Woman" movie as a feminist breakthrough would be horrified by this.
