This week we're giving away five double passes to Mary Shelley, due for release in NZ cinemas July 5, 2018. She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein and his monster, but her real life story -and the creation of that immortal monster-is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth). So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channelled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.
