Cast: Alix Wilton Regan, Giullian Gioiello, Claire Glassford, Philippe Bowgen, Lee Garrett
A unique and interesting story. Puts the novel in the context of the mindset of its author. Mary was a romantic plagued by sorrow. Is the story fictionalized? Yes, of course. But I thought it was creative.
Loved the gothic setting.
great shots great cinematic features overall good story
This is one of the least good films about the Shelleys I have ever seen. The performance of Percy was exceptionally poor in relation to films such as 'Haunted Summer' and 'Mary Shelley'. I found it especialy offensive that Percy was depicted as rapist when there is absolutely no evidence of this. He was a gentle loving soul as is depicted in Mary Shelleys diaries. Overall a badly researched film!!
