Notes:
‘Statistics’ tells the story of Rosalind Franklin - a talented biologist working on the structure of DNA in the 1950s - and Rose Andersson, a current-day student trying to get into medical school. The two female scientists, though separated by half a century, each face their own challenges in their races against the clock. In their darkest moments, they form a connection of grit, perseverance, and love for the beauty of scientific discovery.It is 1951. The race to find the structure of DNA is in full swing, and strong-minded, tight-lipped scientists work side by side in a lab at King’s College London. Among them: Rosalind Franklin, a young, brilliant female scientist surrounded by male colleagues.
