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
A long way from the finesse-and the feminist vigor-that the director, Haifaa Al-Mansour, displayed in her début feature, "Wadjda" (2012).
It boggles the mind that anyone would try to make something mannered from her wild, sad, huge life...a dismal book report that the author herself would have declared fusty.
A welcome showcase for the considerable talents of Elle Fanning, who deftly shades the trials and tribulations of the young writer and her complicated relationship with Percy Shelley
For a film that chronicles the rise of a creator obsessed with reanimating the dead, "Mary Shelley" is utterly lifeless.
It's somewhat amusing - especially Tom Sturridge, who turns Lord Byron into poetry's version of Jack Sparrow - but immediately forgettable.
