CineGrand Film: Mary Shelley
On the Coastal Eye Care screen Thursday, 7:30pm Friday, 1:00pm closed caption 2018. UK. 2 hrs, 1 min. Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour. PG-13. The film tells the story of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin Elle Fanning - author of one of the worlds most famous Gothic novels Frankenstein - and her fiery, tempestuous relationship with renowned romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley Douglas Booth. The pair are two outsiders constrained by polite society but bound together by a natural chemistry and progressive ideas that are beyond the boundaries of their age and time. Mary and Percy declare their love for each other and much to her familys horror they run away together, joined by Marys half-sister Claire Bel Powley. In the midst of growing tension within their relationship during their stay at Lord Byrons Tom Sturridge house at Lake Geneva, the idea of Frankenstein is conceived when a challenge is put to all houseguests to write a ghost story. An incredible character is created, which will loom large in popular culture for centuries to come, but society at the time puts little value in female authors. At the tender age of 18, Mary is forced to challenge these preconceptions, to protect her work and to forge her own identity. With Maisie Williams and Joanne Froggatt. $8 Adults, $7 Seniors/Students, $6 Grand Members/Matinee General Admission
