Mary Shelley

Dir: Haifaa Al-Mansour
Cast: Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Douglas Booth
120mins   2018   UK/USA   12A   English    AD

The story of Frankenstein author Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin and her fiery, tempestuous relationship with renowned romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

The pair are two outsiders constrained by polite society who, much to her family's horror, run away together. In the midst of growing tension within their relationship during their stay at Lord Byron's house at Lake Geneva, the idea of Frankenstein is conceived. An incredible character is created, which will loom large in popular culture for centuries to come, but society at the time puts little value in female authors. At the tender age of 18, Mary is forced to challenge these preconceptions, to protect her work and to forge her own identity.

'An intelligent, probing, well-acted biopic with a strong feminist slant' - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

'It's Jane Austen with sex and drugs and poetry. What's not to like?' - Kate Muir, Daily Mail
