I love both Emma Thompson and Madeline Stowe. Their performances are top notch and they both do a very good job of portraying the characters. I also enjoyed the other actors in this film. I think it would have been better with some more screen time for Ben Kingsley, Edward Woodward, and Bill Mumy. However, the film is well worth watching.

It is the story of the life of Mary Shelley, born in London in 1792, the only child of a poor peasant family. As a young woman she was recruited by Sir Thomas More to write the play 'King Lear' and the play was banned by the House of Commons. She fled to Paris and was then forced to flee to Italy to escape a stoning by the Prussians. She was then arrested and sent to a prison in Italy and was to spend the rest of her life there. She was released in 1796 and married to the wealthy John Ruskin. She lived until 1818, but died at the age of 46. Her son Alfred died in 1846 and the rest of her family were too poor to care for her. A great writer she was, but she was also a very cruel and vengeful woman who did not seem to care much for anyone or anything. In the end her actions are almost heroic. The film is set in England in the time period of Mary Shelley. Mary was very active in the suffragette movement of the 1850s. In 1851, she was arrested and sent to the prison in Finsbury and was locked up in a cell, with only a peephole, and allowed no books. She was then sent to a prison in the south of England and to a prison in London. During this time she wrote 'Frankenstein' and the play 'King Lear'. She was also very active in the men's rights movement of the 1890s. She was eventually released from prison and made a full recovery. It is a very interesting film and I think it is worth seeing. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in history.

This is the story of a young girl named Sarah. She was abandoned by her parents at a very young age. The story is told in her own words. The book was good, but not the best. The movie was even better. There are many parts of the movie that I just can not look away from. The scene of Sarah turning her back on her mother, and the one in the cave where she kills her mother, are so emotionally charged. The acting is excellent. The girl does an excellent job, and the other children are good as well. But the film just gets better and better. The acting is so good, I just can not believe that the movie is not nominated for an Oscar. This movie is a classic. It is like one of those movies that you cannot forget. I would give this a 9 out of 10. But I give it an 8 out of 10. It is a great movie.

A good movie and the only movie with a German actress (Helene Kasten). I would recommend it to anyone who likes history. However, I think it could have been more better. It was not a bad movie, but it could have been better. It had a few good scenes, but I think it could have been better.

This is a good film, but it's not one of the best films ever made. This film is about the search for a lost love. The story is very interesting and keeps the viewer engaged. It's really not a very difficult film to watch. The acting is great, and the direction is very good. However, it could have been much better. The performances are great, but they just aren't enough to save this film. The story is not all that interesting, and I wasn't really interested in the characters that much. I found myself just sitting and thinking "What the heck is going on?". The director may have done a good job with the direction, but I think it was just a bit too abstract for the story. The cinematography was good, but the photography could have been a little better. The lighting was not that great, and the camera angles were way off. The music was very good, but I felt like the music was too quiet. I felt that the music wasn't able to work as a whole. Overall, I didn't really think that this film was that good. It's definitely not the best film I've ever seen, but it's not bad, either. I think that this film is a good movie for people to watch, but it's not that great.

Well, this is the first time I've seen a film directed by Alan Parker. I liked his previous film "The Thin Red Line" but that was mainly because of the performances of John Hurt and Sean Penn. In this film Penn does a very good job, but Hurt was better in "Lincoln" and that is mostly because of the performances of Benecio Del Toro. I also liked the way that director Parker introduced the characters in this film. You could tell that the film was made in the 70's, which is nice. The film's main problem is that it could have been better. It is obvious that the film is based on a poem by Shelley but I think that the film could have been better if the film had been more inspired by the poem. I also found it hard to understand the German accent of Del Toro's character. The film has a very good cast, but I think that the performances of Penn and Hurt are the ones that really make the film work. If you are a fan of Shelley's poetry then you will like this film. If you are not a fan of Shelley's poetry then you will not like this film.

Catherine Wagner is a leading female in the 19th century English drama, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This period piece is based on a popular novel, and chronicles the adventures of a young lady, a young man, a young boy, a young woman, and a young child who are all connected in some way to a mythical creature known as "the Sleepy Hollow". The book, and the movie, are both great works of literature, with stunning images and lush sets, and the performances by the cast are superb. I really enjoyed this movie, and I have no doubt that it is a good adaptation of a great book. Unfortunately, the screenplay is extremely weak. It has many moments where the dialogue is not sharp and the scenes are not exciting. The script is also riddled with cliches, as if it is trying to be too clever for its own good. But the performances are truly superb, as are the cinematography and the sets. It is a great adaptation that shows the importance of beauty and the importance of imagination. I give this movie 7/10.

I saw this film on TV last night and had to see it again. I was expecting an awful movie and I was not disappointed. I think it's a movie worth seeing if you're a fan of Alice Sebold. The film is about a small family in 18th century England, and how they can and are overcome by the oppression of the Church. This is in the context of a book of the same name by Alice Sebold, and it's one of the best books I've read. It's also a film that has been shot beautifully, with great sets and costumes. The movie is a film about a family, and it's also about religion and religious oppression. In the film, the only way people are willing to give up their religion is if they have a family member that they are willing to sacrifice. It's the story of the "Holy Family", and the story of the struggle that they're willing to make to save their family. It's also a film that makes you feel sympathy for the family members, and sympathy for the religious leaders. There are many reasons to see this film, but it's all about the story, and the story is quite good. It's a good story that's told in an interesting way. I'd recommend this film to anyone who enjoys historical fiction films. It's a good film that you can watch over and over again. It's a film you can watch with the family, and with your friends. I'd give this film 7 out of 10 stars.

Fictionalized account of Mary Shelley's life. Set in the 19th century, and based on the fact that Mary was originally a young woman who was married to an aristocrat, who eventually died. Mary was then cast out of the house she lived in and fled to London, where she worked as a secretary and became involved in some politics and became an influential writer. Mary eventually became involved in the creation of a novel, The Frankenstein's Monster, which was later adapted into the motion picture. She eventually married a man she despised, and they had three children. Mary died during childbirth, and her husband died in a car crash. Mary became known as Mary Shelley, and the book she was writing became known as The 1811 novel Mary Shelley, which became the basis for the motion picture Mary Shelley, starring Frances McDormand. She became a famous writer, and had a successful career writing plays. She became deeply religious, and eventually died of tuberculosis. I don't think I will ever get the chance to watch this movie again. The acting is pretty good, especially from McDormand, and it was a pretty decent story. It is one of the better adaptations of the novel, but it is also pretty predictable. Mary Shelley was obviously a very talented woman, and it is really disappointing to hear that she is only known as Mary Shelley.

I have been studying the history of women in the French Revolution and find this movie interesting. This movie is about the life of Queen Victoria and the life of the French Revolution. I do not want to give away the details of the movie but if you want to know more about the French Revolution, I would recommend this movie.

This movie is about Mary Shelley and her literary creation. She writes the novel Frankenstein and then makes the film. A great movie. This is her movie. The movie has a strong message to the modern world. The movie gives the message that love, not just sex, is important. Her movie was important for many people. Her movie has a message that was great. It was one of the first movies that was ever made with a Christian message. The movie had a strong message that is important. It is very important to the future of mankind. It was a movie that was made to give people hope. Mary Shelley's great creation that she created was important to mankind. I think that this movie is great.

I watched this movie because it was recommended to me by my good friend. I am not an expert on American History so I had to do a little bit of research on it to make my own opinion. So I watched this movie, as I always do, and my opinion is that it is an excellent movie. I enjoyed it a lot, and it made me think a lot about it. There were a few parts that I found really offensive and I didn't like them, but the acting was great, and the dialog was good. The acting is really good. The story is really good. It is a good movie, I would recommend it to everyone. I am a little bit disappointed with it because it is just a little bit too long for what it is. It could have been a little bit shorter. I would have liked to see more of the real people, not just the people who were famous at the time. I also think that the actor that played the prophet was a little bit too "politically correct". I don't mind a little bit of violence, but it should be done in a way that the audience can understand. The movie is great. It is very interesting, and it is one of my favorites.

I have always been fascinated by the history of Mary Shelley, and this film certainly makes me more interested in her life and her work. The story of the struggle between her and her father to publish her novel The Last Man is told with a great deal of suspense and a great deal of sadness, but also with a great deal of hope. The film does a great job of showing how the jealousy and pain that she felt about the publication of her novel went on for a very long time. It is a very interesting and realistic story that I think will have the audience drawn in. However, the film could have been better. I felt that it could have been better told as a thriller, rather than a drama, and perhaps it could have been better told as a film about the life of a brilliant writer than about her life and work. However, I think that it was a very well made film, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the life of Mary Shelley.

It's hard to find a movie that can be considered a remake of a film from the 1920's or a retelling of a story that began with the publication of the book by Mary Shelley. That's what makes this film so refreshing, and it's such a shame that it can't be more perfect. After watching this film, I couldn't help thinking that the movie version of Frankenstein could be a lot more interesting than the book, and that it might be better that the movie version than the book. It's a good thing that the movie version is different from the book, because otherwise, this movie would be a very dull experience. The acting is all right, and the special effects are mostly satisfactory. But it's hard to ignore the fact that the story is very different from the book. That's why I'd recommend that you read the book before watching the movie. If you do, you'll realize that there's no need to have your expectations too high, because the movie version is much better than the book. Also, this movie has some very good scenes, like the way that Frankenstein was being subjected to an experimental therapy in the hospital, the way that the changes in his body were being processed, and the way that the transformations were being performed. The other good points are the music and the cinematography. The music in particular is very beautiful, with a good mix of classical and modern music. The cinematography is also very good, especially with the way that the camera was used in the transformation scenes, and the way that the film was edited. I guess the only thing that I didn't like about the movie is the way that the special effects were being used. The effects in particular were very good, but the way that they were being used wasn't always very appropriate. For example, when the transformations were being performed, the director should have used the special effects to make the audience feel the fear that the monster was causing, and not just make them look very fake. That's why I give it a 7 out of 10.

I watched this movie at the premiere and it was a good one. I thought it was an interesting story, the characters were interesting, and I think it was a really great story to tell. However, the ending was a bit of a letdown, although it was not the end of the story. I was not happy with how the story ended. I would recommend watching this movie as it is a good story to tell.

I was prepared to hate this movie, as it is a very poor adaptation of "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley, and I am one of the few people who is going to hate the movie anyway. It is simply the story of a young woman named Mary Shelley, who believed in science and the fact that the world was round, and even though she was wrong about a lot of things, she was a very brave woman, and she tried to do what she thought was right. She also believed that she was the last of her kind, and she wrote "Frankenstein". And she had a very interesting life. She had a young son who was the same age as her, and she was very happy. However, after Mary's husband died, she was left with just a daughter and a few granddaughters. She had a few problems with her daughter, and her son, but she did her best. She had a very difficult time with her granddaughter, and she did her best to raise her as a decent person. However, the situation got worse when she was bitten by a vampire. It took her over 100 years to recover, and she died. And now, her son and her granddaughter have inherited the family fortune, and Mary Shelley has just one last chance to live on. The movie is a very poor adaptation of the story, and the story is so poorly written that the movie really does not have much to say about Mary Shelley's life. The movie is about the story of a woman who was wrong about so many things, but she did what she thought was right, and it was a very brave thing to do. But, it was also very selfish of her. It's not an action movie. It's a story about a woman who believed in science and science was right. However, she did not believe in God, and the movie makes that very clear. I liked the movie. The acting was good, and I thought the story was well done. I did not hate the movie. But I do not recommend it to anyone.

I really liked the movie. I saw it twice and I loved it both times. I didn't like it as much the second time around. I think this is because it was a little too long. It seemed a little overlong to me. The script was very good. The acting was also very good. I enjoyed the character of Mary Shelley. I also liked the fact that the film was told from a very sympathetic point of view. I think that is why I liked it so much. I think it was a very good film.

Frankly, I was not familiar with the story of Mary Shelley, and so I had a hard time putting myself in the place of the famous author. But I found the movie very fascinating, and very well done. It does a good job of portraying Shelley as a lonely woman, struggling with her husband's advances, but at the same time, trying to write her famous novel. I thought that the story was very interesting and well told, and I enjoyed it greatly. I think that the movie is very accurate in portraying Shelley's life, and if I had to compare it to the book, I would say that the movie is better. The movie is in black and white, which helps to get the feel of the time, and also gives the movie a better feel. The movie is very violent, and so I think that the movie does a good job of portraying violence. There were some scenes that were very graphic, but they were not graphic enough to make the movie uncomfortable. Overall, I thought the movie was very good. It is a good movie for people who are interested in the life of Mary Shelley, and it is a good movie to see if you are interested in the history of science fiction. The movie is extremely well done, and is one of the better movies I have seen in the last few years.

In the early 1970s, Elizabeth Taylor (Taylor) was an American actress who played the leading role in the most successful movie of her career, The Shining. She was hailed as a feminist icon and the most prominent Hollywood woman at the time. She made it clear in interviews that she had to fight hard for the part of her character, a widow who was desperately in love with a man in her mid-forties. She was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance, which she did in her final film, The Reaping. This film is set in the late 1930s, in a country with a lot of poverty, unemployment and illness. Taylor plays the title role, a frail, elderly woman who is haunted by visions of her husband who died in a fire many years earlier. It is hard to believe that the movie was made in the 1970s, but it was an era of social change that was common place for everyone in the country. Elizabeth Taylor was a groundbreaking actress who brought a new sense of realism to the screen and gave millions of Americans a glimpse into the lives of the working poor. Her performance as Mrs. Shelley will never be forgotten, and it is the best thing that happened to her career. It will never be forgotten, either, for its impact on the lives of women and the idea that women are equal to men.
