Some Of Shelley's Blues
Haifaa Al-Mansour looks at the early life of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (later Shelley), her meeting with Percy Bysshe Shelley, their shenanigans with Lord Byron and how it somehow all broiled up and became Mary’s novel, Frankenstein. Liberties may well have been taken along the way.
Elle Fanning stars as Mary, Douglas Booth exudes insouciance as Shelley and Tom Sturridge is scurrilous as Byron. Elsewhere you can check out Bel Powley, Joanne Froggatt and Stpehen Dillane.
Mary Shelley opens May 25
