Mary Shelley


Dir. Haifaa al-Mansour | UK / Luxembourg / USA 2018 | 120 min | cert 12A
 
The tempestuous romance that inspired one of Gothic literature’s most influential works is brought to life in a luscious and moving period drama starring Elle Fanning as the radical young writer.
 
When 16 year old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin runs away with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, her family are horrified. Young and passionately in love, at first she relishes life amongst the radical Romantics. But as time goes on, Percy’s betrayals begin to test their relationship. On a trip to Lord Byron’s mansion in Geneva, Mary is challenged to write a ghost story. Drawing on her experiences of heartbreak and the dark side of humanity, she creates Frankenstein, a work that will shape the literary world for centuries.
 
With a strong ensemble cast including Douglas Booth, Bel Powley and Maisie Williams, this rousing and exquisite biopic balances sumptuous period detail with a timely feminist message. Directed by Saudi Arabia’s first female filmmaker, Haifaa al-Mansour (Wadjda), it’s a vivid tribute to Shelley’s passion, courage and craft.
