Elle Fanning shines as a young Mary Shelley in this biopic, directed by Haifaa al-Mansour. Caught up in a relationship with the poet Percy Shelley, her first love, Mary elopes with him to stay at the home of Lord Byron by Lake Geneva. There, as the story famously goes, the guests were challenged to write a ghost story, the result was Frankenstein. The film follows her story from the moment she meets the dashing Percy to finally getting her novel published.
