Showing exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema. The tempestuous romance that inspired one of Gothic literature’s most influential works is brought to life in 'Mary Shelley', a luscious and moving period drama starring Elle Fanning as the radical young writer. When 16-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin runs away with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, her family are horrified. Young and passionately in love, at first she relishes life amongst the radical Romantics. But as time goes on, Percy’s betrayals and indiscretions begin to test their relationship. One day, on a trip to Lord Byron’s mansion in Geneva, Mary is challenged to write a ghost story. Drawing on her experiences of heartbreak and the dark side of humanity, she creates ‘Frankenstein’, a work that will shape the literary world for centuries. Directed by Saudi Arabia’s first female filmmaker, Haifaa al-Mansour ('Wadjda'), this rousing and exquisite biopic balances sumptuous period detail with a timely feminist message. ★★★★ "Captured with curious and probing compassion" - Kevin Maher, The Times
