Sixteen-year-old Mary spends her days reading ghost stories and daydreaming on the grave of her mother, the eminent writer and women’s rights activist Mary Wollstonecraft. When she meets 21-year-old poet and infamous womanizer Percy Shelley at a party, her father - famous anarchist philosopher William Godwin - responds disapprovingly to his daughter’s interest in the married poet. Mary and Percy elope, bringing with them Mary’s half-sister Claire. Their wild spiral of partying, poverty and unbridled passion leads them the Swiss villa of the eccentric Lord Byron, where Mary confronts her demons and conceives the story of Frankenstein.

“A film about ideas that breaks out of the well-worn mold of period drama /…/ by reaching deeply into the mind of the extraordinary woman who wrote the Gothic evergreen.”

The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
