Elle Fanning stars in this irresistible gothic romance as Mary Wellstone Godwin, a rebellious young woman who falls for seductive poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth). Their fierce love affair bears all the wild passion and heartbreak that would inspire her to create the horror classic Frankenstein. Originally published anonymously, Mary soon finds her attempt to claim ownership over the iconic novel is undermined by those believing such a work could have only been written by a man.
Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Bel Powley (Diary of a Teenage Girl) also star, while director Haifa al-Mansour, the first woman to direct a film in Saudi Arabia, proves to be a perfect fit to take on another story of a woman fighting for recognition in a man’s world.
