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 Bysshe Shelley (Douglas Booth). So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy, culminating in a dark and stormy night in Italy when, dared by Shelley’s friend Lord Byron (Tom Sturridge) to write a ghost story, Mary draws on her own experiences to create her Gothic masterwork, the first science fiction novel.
Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadjda), and imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, MARY SHELLEY brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channelled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.
