In 1814, Regency-era London, Mary Wollstonecraft-Godwin is a 16 years old aspiring writer who works in the bookshop of her renowned father writer William Godwin, married in second terms after the passing of his first wife, philosopher Mary Wollstonecraft, with the too married by second time Mary Jane Clairmont, where Mary Jane's daughter of her first marriage Claire turns in a close and lovely stepsister for Mary. When Mary and Claire travel at the house of one of William's friends in Scotland, Mary meets the 21 years old poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, rising instantly a love interest between them. Returning to London little time later, Mary unexpectedly meets Percy again when he appears at her house in order to ask William to take him on as an apprentice. Fascinated by Percy, Mary begins a bohemian and torrid relationship with him despite the opposition of her father and her stepmother, especially after they discover that Percy is married with a little daughter whom he supports but he loves no longer. Determined to be free and live on her own terms, Mary flees with Percy to live together accompanied by Claire, who wants to get far from her abusive mother. Their initial happiness turns to tragedy due to the debts and poverty, in addition to the terrible loss of Mary and Percy's daughter, who dies only a few months after to born. Broken by suffering and pain, as well as a season living with the rich, eccentric and hedonist Lord Byron and doctor John Polidori, Mary turns into a shadowy being, becoming more and more obsessed with the idea of resurrecting the dead, while Claire lives a stormy and painful romance with the own Byron. All these events will lead Mary, motivated by a Lord Byron's bet about who can write the scariest horror novel, to find her own voice and exorcise her innermost demons by writing "Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus". But when prejudices of these times cause the novel to be attributed to Percy Shelley, it forces Mary to fight by claiming the novel as her own to prove that a woman can be the writer as she is.

This movie is very good. I had to read the original book before watching it, but I have to say it was a very good book and this movie was very good. The special effects were great, and the cast was great. They were very good at acting. It was very good and very sad at the same time. This movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is very good and I recommend this movie to everyone.

I saw this film on the TV, not knowing anything about it, and was not disappointed. It's not the most compelling or powerful film I've ever seen, but it is not boring. Shelley is a brilliant writer and it's hard to understand why her works are never translated into movies. Her best known works are "Frankenstein" and "Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell". I think she is best known for this story and that it is a perfect fit for a movie. The acting is first-rate, and the character of Lord Byron is very well portrayed. If you haven't read the novel, you'll love the film. I think you should read the novel before watching this film, though. I would say it is a 9/10, but I haven't read the novel so I can't say. It's a good film, but I've seen much better.

The story of Mary Shelley and her many endeavors to spread the ideas of female emancipation was well-handled and given an epic backdrop. The cast is also fantastic with the likes of Helen Mirren, Frances McDormand, and Helena Bonham Carter. Director Scott Rudin, who also wrote the film, does a good job of building the audience's interest and sympathy for Mary's work. The issue of the girl's rights and the struggle of women to get the same rights as men is handled well. The last scene is well-done and I have to admit, I was a bit of a mess at the end. There were times when I was confused and I am not sure how to interpret the end. I think the movie would be better if it ended with the same ending. This is not the best movie I have seen but it is still a great film.

I watched this film a few days ago. I have read many comments, from both the left and the right. The left said that the story was not true, the right said that the story was a thinly veiled anti-war propaganda. I am a liberal, so I don't really have a problem with either side, but I do think that if a movie's message is a little thin, it should be made into a movie. The film is a very good representation of the time period. It also captures the emotions of the time quite well. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves the time period. I'm not sure if I would watch it again, but I'm sure that it will be a very good film to watch again. The acting is superb. The supporting actors are also great. A must see.

To start with, I think that this film was amazing. I went to the cinema with the intention of watching the movie for the first time and I can say that I didn't regret it. First of all, the production was very impressive. The cinematography was stunning, the costumes were great and the scenery was beautiful. The costumes were all the same color, they looked like they were made for a theater and that's what I loved about the movie. Secondly, I loved the story. I think that this movie was very well written. I love how every character in this movie has something to do with history. The story is very interesting and it does keep your attention from start to finish. It's a very well-written story that everyone should watch. Third, I love the actors. Every character was played very well and they didn't give me any problems with their performances. Every single character was good in their role and I loved the way they portrayed each one of them. Fourth, I loved the acting of the main character. I didn't think that it was amazing, but I loved the way he portrayed the story of his character. He did a great job in portraying the feelings of his character. I loved the way he spoke in this movie. And fifth, I loved the score. It was wonderful. I think that this movie is a must-see for everyone who loves historical movies. I think that everyone should watch this movie and I will definitely go back and watch it again. I would recommend this movie to everyone. It is one of my favorite movies of all time and I recommend everyone to watch this movie. I am going to be watching this movie for a long time. Thank you for reading my review. :)

This film is one of the best that I have ever seen. It is a love story about the years when Mary Shelley wrote the novel Frankenstein and it tells the story of Mary Shelley's marriage to a widower and how her work has influenced her later life. Her son Fredrick (played by Patrick Wilson) is trying to make his mother proud, to see her come of age and to tell her the good times she had. His best friend, the much younger Willy Loman (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) is trying to make Mary happy, to see her get a promotion and to tell her that his life will not be like the rest of the world. Mary Shelley's life is pretty much a tragic one and it is great to see it told in such a way, in a way that makes the audience feel like they are part of it. The movie is extremely well done. It is so well written and directed that the audience feels like they are in the room with Mary and her friends. It's very difficult to put in words what this film does, because it is so powerful and that is what makes it so great. I really think that it is a must see movie. I would recommend this film to everyone.

After a long time, I have come to appreciate "Midsummer Night's Dream" as one of the finest and most thought-provoking romantic dramas in movie history. It is the perfect way to honor the life of Shelley and her genius in creating the world in which we live today. I am glad to have seen it, and I think it will be one of my favorites for a long time to come.

One of the best movies ever made. The casting, direction, cinematography, the cinematography.everything. I don't care about the plot because it's just so good. Great actors. Great story. I love it!

The film is based on the 18th century poem "Midsummer's Night Dream" and is loosely based on Shelley's own diary. While I love the book, I have to say the film does not capture the full power of the book. There is a sense of inevitability and the book is a dream of this one man's life. But the film is too long and has too much melodrama. There is some really great acting in the film, especially the three women who are in love with the main character, but the film feels too long. There is a lot of plot that is left out, and the film has an excessive amount of sentimentalism. The film also lacks focus. While the film is primarily about one man's life, it seems to drag on a little too long. But all in all, the film is still a great movie.

If there was ever a woman who would be the greatest feminist of all time, it would be Frances McDormand. In the 1920s, while a ten year old girl, she was the sole survivor of a horrific train wreck, and a brutal attack by a gang of drunken sailors. Having lost her home and her family, she finds herself in a penniless position, and ends up working as a housekeeper for a wealthy family. This movie is a retelling of the novel by Ann Radcliffe, and the story is told through the eyes of the young, grieving and frustrated young woman. McDormand is brilliant in her portrayal of the character, and there are many scenes that were so affecting that I was crying. She is one of the best actors working today, and she deserves an Oscar for her work here.

No other movie is as good as "The Cuckoo's Egg". I've read reviews that the movie was bad, I couldn't believe they said that. The movie was great. I don't care if it wasn't based on a true story, it's a great movie. The acting was great, and all the cast was wonderful. The setting was great. The music was great. I loved the movie, and I will watch it over and over again. I also enjoyed the music in the movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone, regardless of your political beliefs. If you have an open mind, and you like good movies, I would highly recommend this movie.

I was never a fan of the movie, but the book is very good and has a lot of magic to it. I just recently saw the movie and it's very good. I liked the direction they took it and the acting was great, even though some of the roles weren't exactly like I would have liked them to be. I think they did a great job at not taking the story too seriously. The story is very good, it's a good love story that's worth watching. I just think the acting is the best part of the movie, and the characters are well developed. I think it's a great film to see and I would definitely recommend it. 9/10

I am not a huge fan of the original movie but after seeing this I am fully convinced that the film is a masterpiece. It has everything a great movie should have: great acting, good direction, great production values, good acting, and above all a great story. The story is a combination of a poem and a tale of a poor girl who was raised by wolves. The poem is really great and so is the story, but it has been done so much better in the original movie. The story is also very good but it is not so much the main character's story as the supporting characters. All of them are so well done, especially the love interest. The ending of the story is also very good, it is completely different from the ending of the original film. The reason I am giving this movie a 9 out of 10 is because I think the original film was a bit overrated and the remake is more like a better version of the original. I do not think that the remake is that bad, but it is not that good either. Overall I think this is one of the best movies ever made. 9/10

This is a great movie about a woman named Mary Shelley, who was a famous writer of the time, and who wrote the novel "Frankenstein" which is one of the most famous novel in all history. Mary Shelley is played by Meryl Streep, who plays her part in this movie very well, and the rest of the cast is very good too. I liked this movie very much, and I would recommend this movie to anyone. I think that it is a very good movie, and it is one of the best movies of all time.

This is an important movie for many reasons, not least of which is the presence of the actress who played the role of Mrs. Shelley, Susan Sarandon. Her portrayal of the woman who died at the end of the film is extremely touching and moving, and I believe this film should be required viewing for all people who are interested in understanding the complexities of history and our place in it. However, I would recommend this movie for those who do not have a strong interest in the life of Mrs. Shelley or are not interested in learning about the history of this woman and her time in the country. It is a long film, and the documentary approach to the production is sometimes a bit confusing. Still, it is well worth watching.

No, I don't have a lot of time for this movie, but I love the period drama that the cast and crew have crafted. First of all, I don't care if it's historical or not, I want to feel the atmosphere of a place and time that I love so much. In this movie, I was completely entranced by the storytelling. And I don't know if the film will be better in the sequel, but I am looking forward to it.

The film tells the story of Mary Shelley's masterpiece, Frankenstein. This film also tells the story of how she met her husband, Percy Shelley, and how their love affected her work. The film begins with Mary Shelley writing her famous novel. The film ends with Mary Shelley (Emily Watson) and Percy Shelley (Matt Craven) meeting in England. Mary Shelley is a shy girl, with a fragile personality. She doesn't fit in at school, and has a shy disposition. However, she is determined to become a writer. She is successful, and begins to write her famous novel. Her husband Percy has an affair with his secretary, Julia. She is hurt by his behavior, and becomes depressed. She goes to an insane asylum, where she becomes a patient. She begins to believe that she is insane, and begins to write her famous novel. She learns that the town is interested in her work, and seeks advice from a local doctor. She starts writing her book, and is eventually published. The film then follows Mary Shelley's life in England, and how she eventually becomes a writer. The film is filled with beautiful photography, and a great score. The film is well worth seeing, and I highly recommend it.

Glad I watched this movie. I just can't help but admire this piece of film. It is beautiful, romantic, tragic and an in your face reminder that not all of us are born with the right to vote. Well worth the watch.

For the first time in many years, I have seen a movie with good musical scores that work as well as the main titles of the films. This film is just as good as any of the classics of this genre. In fact, the music is so good that the story does not even have to make any sense. The acting was superb. The casting is perfect. This film does not take itself too seriously and is enjoyable for all ages.

I think it's the best movie I have seen since The Lord of the Rings. The movie is great. It's a very important movie, and it has a lot of historical content. And it's one of the most important movies of the year. It has been compared to the book. Well, I don't know if that's true, but I can say that it is a very good movie, and the movie makes a very important point that you should not let your emotions get in the way of your reasoning. And the movie is very long, and you should be able to follow it. You should be able to see it in the cinema, and if you want to see it on TV, I would recommend you to watch it on TV. I think the movie is very important, and you should see it.

I saw this movie yesterday and I was very impressed. I was expecting a more serious movie but it is more of a comedy. I like the fact that they had the courage to be different from what Hollywood has shown us over the years. The plot was simple and the characters were very realistic. I don't know if I could understand the language, but I did understand the plot. I think this is one of the best movies I've seen this year. I would love to see more movies like this. It is very interesting. The scenes are so good that you can't even blink. It is very funny. I would recommend this movie to everyone.
