National Theatre Live: Frankenstein
Frankenstein returns to international cinemas this year, to mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelleys most famous novel. Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world. Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBCs Sherlock) as Victor Frankenstein and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) as the Creature.
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankensteins bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with 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 and deeply disturbing classic tale.
