What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Deborah Young Trials of a fiery, free-spirited woman.
Gabi Zietsman For its biographical content, Mary Shelley is an interesting watch if you’re a literary aficionado interested in the Romantics of that time, but on a film-level it fails to deliver an impactful story of a women’s fight for her place in life, encumbered by cliché emotion and rigid writing.
Tomatometer Mary Shelley smooths out its subject’s fascinating life and fails to communicate the spark of her classic work, undermining fine period detail and a solid Elle Fanning performance.
Sandie Angulo Chen Interesting but uneven drama about famous female author.
