16 year old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin runs away with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Young and in love, she relishes life amongst the radical Romantics. But Percy’s betrayals test their relationship. At Lord Byron’s mansion, Mary is challenged to write a ghost story. Drawing on her experiences and the dark side of humanity, she creates a work that will shape the literary world for centuries.


  • “The pace is a little sluggish in places but the interaction between key characters is the film's strongest element.” – Matthew Toomey , ABC Radio Brisbane
  • “What could have been the typical academic and cold British-style biography becomes in the hands of the director an intense melodrama in which the young protagonist is forced to mature overnight when love comes into her life.” – José Martín , El antepenúltimo mohicano
  • “Al-Mansour narrates with elegance, rhythm, intensity and delicacy about the painful vital learning, the iron will in the learning of art, vocational subversion, and the refusal to submit in a ancestrally macho universe.” – Carlos Boyero , El Pais (Spain)
