Radioactive

Based on the graphic novel by Lauren Redniss, with an adapted screenplay from Bristol-born Jack Thorne (The Aeronauts), a brilliant central performance from the UK’s Rosamund Pike elevates this thoughtful drama. With outstanding support from Brits Sam Riley, Anya Taylor-Joy and Simon Russell Beale, the film was co-produced by Working Title Films and Shoebox Films.

It soon becomes clear that her findings could either lead to life-saving medicine or more terrifyingly, warfare that could destroy billions of lives.
