Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley 12A

Director: Haifaa al-Mansour
Cast: Douglas Booth, Elle Fanning

Country: UK
Year: 2017
Duration: 121m

Elle Fanning stars in this scintillating biopic of the ‘Frankenstein’ author, chronicling her tempestuous marriage to dissolute poet Percy Shelley and the fateful night at a Swiss chateau that inspired her most famous creation. Directed by Haifaa al-Mansour (WADJDA) the film depicts the author as a fiercely modern 19th-century woman, and her ‘Frankenstein’ as the product of unbridled imagination and profound grief. al-Mansour renders Mary Shelley as a sumptuous and intoxicating proto-feminist tale of fearless self-actualisation and fiery creativity.
