A film about the love between Percy Bysshe Shelley and young Mary, the future author of Frankenstein.
Passionately rebellious Mary Wollstonecraft finds a kindred spirit in poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. The stormy affair explodes into “decent” society which is outraged by their bohemian lifestyle. When tragedy strikes with the death of their newborn child, Mary, who is only eighteen, finds the strength to transform her suffering into the legendary work, Frankenstein… Elle Fanning and Maisie Williams shine in this all star cast.
