An astonishing tale of beauty and brains.

In the 1930s and 40s Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr (born Hedwig Kiesler) was regarded as one of most beautiful women in the world. Less well known is that Hedy Lamarr possessed a brilliant scientific mind and invented technology that would become the cornerstone of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Yes, you did just read that. This beautifully assembled documentary chronicles the astonishing life and achievements of a woman who was both blessed and cursed by her beauty.
