Miami Premiere Engagement!

The Real Life Story of the author of FRANKENSTEIN


Directed by HAIFAA AL-MANSOUR/2018/IRELAND/UK/121mins.

With Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Douglas Booth,

Joanne Froggatt, Stephan Dillane

She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein. But the real life story of Mary Shelley—and the creation of her immortal monster—is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father (Stephen Dillane) in 18th-century London, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth). So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channeled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.

MARY SHELLEY IS A LUSCIOUS LOOKING SPECTACLE, DRENCHED IN THE COLORS AND VISCERAL SENSATIONS OF NATURE, the sensuality of young lovers, the passionate disappointment of loss and betrayal. But above all it is a film about ideas that breaks out of the well-worn mold of period drama (partly, anyway) by reaching deeply into the mind of the extraordinary woman who wrote the Gothic evergreen Frankenstein”-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
