Elle Fanning, Douglas Booth, Bel Powley, and Tom Sturridge are all featured on this new official picture of Mary Shelley (aka A Storm in the Stars), the upcoming biography romantic drama movie directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour:
“The film depicts the author Mary Shelley as a fiercely modern 19th-century woman, and her Frankenstein as the product of unbridled imagination and profound grief.
Daughter of political philosophers William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, who died giving birth to her, Mary (Elle Fanning) is a bookish adolescent of humble means when she meets Percy Bysshe Shelley (Douglas Booth), who, though only 21, is already a celebrated young poet — and a shameless womanizer with one collapsing marriage already under his belt. Defying her beloved but disapproving father, Mary absconds with Shelley — her stepsister, Claire (Bel Powley), in tow. Mary seeks ‘unconventional approaches to living’, and finds it in spades with her debt-ridden bon vivant scribe, who desires neither monogamy nor the constraints of fatherly responsibility. Yet Percy believes in Mary, and two years into their union he whisks her away to a Swiss chateau for a summer of debauchery presided over by Lord Byron (Tom Sturridge), where Mary will confront personal demons and compose the most influential horror novel of all time.
Those young people obviously didn’t have to work in the field or at a factory…
