Movies: Mary Shelley

Elle Fanning (Super 8, The Beguiled) "offers a new spin on the author of Frankenstein in the trailer for Mary Shelley," according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film, directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour, also stars Douglas Booth (Noah) and Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones).

"We wanted to portray a strong woman who is willing to step out of line and find her own voice," said Al-Mansour, who is best known for her 2012 film Wadjda--the first-ever feature from a female Saudi Arabian director. IFC Films' Mary Shelley hits theaters May 25.
