Mary Shelley (2018)
Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for Mary Shelley
The movie is still well executed but, at two hours, not even Fanning's persuasive performance can elevate it to being more than a moderately interesting historical drama.
The film, though handsome and well-acted, reduces Mary Shelley's accomplishments; it's almost over by the time "Frankenstein" gets written, with little attention paid to its author's creative spark.
As it stands, this monstrously inept creation is more terrifying than any scenario the author conjured up.
To make boring the revelries of 19th century literati is no mean feat, but it is "Mary Shelley's" chief accomplishment.
There's nothing internal about Fanning's performance to suggest that Mary is an artist with something she needs to say and that must be said.
