What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is a mature biographical drama based on the unconventional family life of the creator of the Wonder Woman comic. Psychologist Dr. Bill Marston (Luke Evans) is portrayed as having had a three-way polyamorous relationship with his wife and a younger woman. The movie is occasionally sexually explicit (including partial nudity -- breasts, buttocks) and features the three adults engaging in light bondage/domination and submission. There's also frequent strong language (mostly "f--k" and "f---ing") and mature themes related to family structure, fluid sexuality, psychological theories, and the hidden messages in popular comics.
