Watch The Creation Of Frankenstein In ‘Mary Shelley’ | Film Trailer
Everyone knows the story of Frankenstein and Frankensteins Monster. Now we get the story behind the creation, we get the story of its author, Mary Shelley. Her life story is nearly as tragic and fantastical as the story she created nearly 200 years ago.
Mary was raised by her philosopher father in 18th-century London. She was a teenage dreamer when she meets the poet Percy Shelley. A love bond forms quickly between the then-married man and the young woman. The affair marked by passion and personal tragedy will fuel the writing of her masterpiece.
Elle Fanning will bring the young woman to life on screen. Her husband, Percy Shelley, will be portrayed by Douglas Booth. These both are joined by Tom Sturridge, Bel Powley, Ben Hardy, Maisie Williams and Joanne Froggatt. It will hit the theaters for a limited time on May 25.
