Mary Shelley will forever be remembered as the author of 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, tempestuous of spirit and determined to make her mark on the world when she meets, and has a love affair with, the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth).
Bohemian passion and personal tragedy subsequently fuel Mary’s writing of her masterpiece.
