At The Cinema  •  Now Showing Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley is played with alert sensitivity and acute intelligence by Elle Fanning

A.O. Scott – The New York Times

Celebrates Mary Shelley for the trailblazing woman that she is. Fanning is excellent.

Katie Walsh – Los Angeles Times

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. Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadjda).
