Mary Shelley

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 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.
