Hedy Lamarr was a forward-thinking, technically-brilliant innovator. Her ‘frequency hopping’ patent forms the basis for some of the most pervasive technologies we use today, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and wireless telephones - yet she is mostly remembered as glamourous 1940s Hollywood starlet.

The film has won several awards since being shown at the Tribeca Film Festival, including a New York Times Critic's Pick and five audience awards.​
