Frankenstein

Sunday, October 28

Film Suburbs & Beyond

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature (Benedict Cumberbatch) is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker (Johnny Lee Miller). Meeting cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling tale. Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle's smash hit production returns to cinema screens to mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus.
