Essential Reading Before You Watch the New Mary Shelley Biopic

Great news that movie Mary Shelley will be showing at the Toronto Film Festival. It is based on Mary Shelley’s tumultuous and scandalous life when she was a young woman, and wrote the iconic novel Frankenstein.

This still shot shows Elle Fanning as Mary, sitting by her mother’s grave. The movie also stars Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Joanne Froggat, Douglas Booth and Tom Sturridge.

Before you watch this much anticipated film, read the full story of Mary Shelley and her turbulent relationship with the poet Percy Shelley and her jealous step-sister Claire in Almost Invincible. (available on-line or in store.)

An impressive fictional tale of Mary’s creative but tragedy scarred life (Yorkshire evening Post).
