The tempestuous romance that inspired one of Gothic literature’s most influential works is brought to life in Mary Shelley, a luscious and moving period drama starring Elle Fanning as the radical young writer. Young and passionately in love, at first 16-year-old Mary relishes life amongst the radical Romantics, but as time goes on, Percy Bysshe Shelley’s betrayals and indiscretions begin to test their relationship. Drawing on her experiences of heartbreak and the dark side of humanity, Mary writes ‘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.
