Mary Wollstonecraft's family disapproves when she and poet Percy Shelley announce their love for each other. The family is horrified when it finds that the couple has eloped, accompanied by Mary's half-sister, Claire. While staying in the home of Lord Byron at Lake Geneva, the guests are challenged to write a ghost story, which leads Mary to conceive her novel "Frankenstein."


Elle Fanning impresses as the title character in Mary Shelley and with a new generation of feminists discovering both Mary and her mother, the story is ripe for retelling. (Mail Online)


Fanning has a superb presence as Mary, revealing her blazing intellect and social passion with some nicely complex layers.'(Shadows on the Wall)
