Synopsis

Mary Shelley’s Gothic masterpiece ‘Frankenstein’ was published when she was only 20 years-old. This period drama spans her writing process and her turbulent romance with Percy Bysshe Shelley till that moment. Shelley, an intelligent young girl, was the daughter of writers and philosophers Mary Wollstonecraft and William Goodwin. She inherited her late mother’s love for writing at the age of 16 and ran away, accompanied by her sister Claire, to live with Shelley. The film takes a close look at their passionate affair and bohemian way of life, alongside personal tragedies which affected Shelley and undoubtedly inspired some of her writing, while also exploring issues such as authorship and the era’s narrow attitudes towards women.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
