Description In 1814, Regency-era London, Mary Wollstonecraft-Godwin is a 16 years old aspiring writer who works in the bookshop of her renowned father writer William Godwin, married in second terms after the passing of his first wife, philosopher Mary Wollstonecraft, with the too married by second time Mary Jane Clairmont, where Mary Jane's daughter of her first marriage Claire turns in a close and lovely stepsister for Mary. When Mary and Claire travel at the house of one of William's friends in Scotland, Mary meets the 21 years old poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, rising instantly a love interest between them. Returning to London little time later, Mary unexpectedly meets Percy again when he appears at her house in order to ask William to take him on as an apprentice. Fascinated by Percy, Mary begins a bohemian and torrid relationship with him despite the opposition of her father and her stepmother, especially after they discover that Percy is married with a little daughter whom he supports but he loves no longer. Determined to be free and live on her own terms, Mary flees with Percy to live together accompanied by Claire, who wants to get far from her abusive mother. Their initial happiness turns to tragedy due to the debts and poverty, in addition to the terrible loss of Mary and Percy's daughter, who dies only a few months after to born. Broken by suffering and pain, as well as a season living with the rich, eccentric and hedonist Lord Byron and doctor John Polidori, Mary turns into a shadowy being, becoming more and more obsessed with the idea of resurrecting the dead, while Claire lives a stormy and painful romance with the own Byron. All these events will lead Mary, motivated by a Lord Byron's bet about who can write the scariest horror novel, to find her own voice and exorcise her innermost demons by writing "Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus". But when prejudices of these times cause the novel to be attributed to Percy Shelley, it forces Mary to fight by claiming the novel as her own to prove that a woman can be the writer as she is.

As a high school history teacher, I grew up in a time when it was common for teachers to write about the early years of their subject or the school's foundation. I'm not sure whether my own personal reaction to "the old timers" has influenced my experiences in teaching, but "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is the type of film that makes you feel like you're in that time period and that you are part of that group. I have taught a class of nearly 150 students for the past 10 years and this is probably the most respectful, thought-provoking and intellectual class that I have ever taught. The film "the old timers" is about the friends of Mae West who wrote about the Hollywood blockbusters of the 1930's through 1960's that became popular when World War II hit. This was a period when television had been invented. There is no doubt that this group of friends were writing about a time that was different from what we thought about as a society and it is a time that was for sure larger than life. I can tell you that one of the young men who wrote about the movie "The Great Escape" will always be remembered for his poignant, controversial writing and the fact that he was a pioneer in using the written word and a strong advocate of the freedom of the press. The film is one that the young generation needs to see and one that will give them a sense of a time that we don't know about. As a student of Mae West's writing, I can tell you that it was about a time in our history that was such a roller coaster of emotions that you never knew what would happen. To this day I can't sleep without thinking of her letters to her editor or how my life was changed because of her. "The old timers" is a wonderful film and one that I would recommend to all students of any age.

This is the greatest love story ever written. The film follows Shelley's great love with a sympathetic camera and a kindly director who lets the actors have their moments of vulnerability, and slowly builds into a heartwarming portrait of human nature. The story is based on the novel by Louise Beukes and is one of the few love stories of the twentieth century that retains a humanistic touch without being based on fantasy. As other reviewers have pointed out, this film is highly relevant today because it was the catalyst for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment in the US. Elizabeth Taylor was a pivotal character in the film, but in my opinion she was underused, and even when she is seen we are given a very limited view of her. The film belongs to Lillian Gish, who gives a brilliant performance as the tenacious Shelley. You see very little of Gish's character, and her presence is the reason this film is so great. In addition, Maggie Smith plays Shelley's wife in a larger role than she deserves, and their scenes together are some of the best of their movie careers. But the true stars of the film are the two main leads: Madge Sinclair and Gish. Sinclair is perfectly cast as the ignorant Shelley, and the two actresses collaborate brilliantly as Shelley and Gish. Their connection is palpable, and they make their characters very believable, as though they are real people. You really feel for them. It is impossible not to feel for the people in the film. The female leads do all they can to give the story a heart, and they make you want to follow their story through the film. Emma Thompson is just as effective in her role as Elizabeth Taylor, even though Taylor is in less than a dozen scenes. Thompson is not a very important character, but she gives a powerful performance as the needy Shelley. She lets her situation define her, and she also portrays her desire to find her true love with conviction and love. Thompson's character is the film's most interesting character, and she is very much in love with Shelley. The scenes between Thompson and Taylor are very good, and Thompson is also very convincing as a devoted wife who would do anything for her wife and son. The romantic elements are secondary to the story, which is best summed up by the film's title. The film revolves around the battle between the "Carpenters", with their superior science, and the "Sir Richard's" men who were constantly pushing science further than it was needed, and the contrast between the two. Much of the film is actually about Shelley's and Gish's love story, which is depicted in a very straightforward way. They fight constantly, and this ultimately causes much of the film's tension. This film, and the relationship between it and "The War of the Roses", gives us a glimpse of the truly independent human spirit that is a hallmark of the nineteenth century.

Saw this film at the Hollywood film festival a few days ago and I am still thinking about it. I don't have a good way to explain what this film means to me but I would like to say that it is a very compelling film that I recommend. The story takes place during the English Civil War (1642-1649) and the Queen of England, Elizabeth I, is threatened with a rebellion from the Catholic churches. The rebellion begins to grow when a group of Catholic brothers who believe in miracles appears at an English manor. The Queen of England takes refuge in the manor and begins to suspect that there is something sinister happening inside. This story is done in a way that it is very believable. You feel that there are people inside the manor who are affected by the supernatural. The performances are great all around. Ralph Fiennes was great as Charles Brandon, an Englishman who is suspicious of the supernatural happening. Maggie Smith was also great as Elizabeth I, a frail but strong woman who believes in God and is determined to defend her throne. Toby Jones was very good as Brandon's brother and was just as good as Fiennes. The director, Michael Apted, has a good way to show the characters that the audience can relate to. The music in this film is amazing. I felt the music brought me back to a time where I was growing up. The scene in the church when the music is playing is very powerful and is the best scene in the movie. The screenplay by Meryll Streep and Louis Aragon is very intelligent and is the best film of the year so far. The acting is amazing as well. You don't have to be a big fan of the Shakespeare play to understand the words. The best acting came from Ralph Fiennes as Brandon and Michael Apted. In conclusion, this is a great film that I recommend everyone to see.

Spoilers to follow. "The Ballad of Tom Jones" tells the story of Shakespeare's first real love Tom Jones, who is played by Jude Law. She dies before the play is finished. She goes to London, where she meets, falls for, and then marries Tom Jones. Then she goes to her deathbed. The film uses various great locations. It has beautiful sets, costumes, and sets. It also uses some wonderful art. Like the Mona Lisa. It also uses new places and uses new art. "The Ballad of Tom Jones" is beautifully directed. The movie moves slowly, but it doesn't feel slow. It just seems to go by very, very slowly. The movie doesn't really offer a plot, but it does tell the story. The story is about a widow. Her husband died and she was left penniless and alone. So, she starts the work of writing the play. Now, we get to know the poor widow. Tom Jones (played by Jude Law). He is an old man and is very kind and generous. He is very faithful and faithful to his wife. He loves her very much. He knows that she will die, and he goes through this whole trial. Then, Tom makes the poor widow a maid and lets her write the play. Then, she's not able to do it. So, he gives her a way out. The film is very slow. But, it is well done. It shows how the old man is heartbroken and can't believe what has happened to his wife. It tells the story of Tom's early years. The film also shows how the old man is loyal to his wife. This film is also a documentary. It tells a story that never happened. A woman wants to give Tom a gift. But, they are made to suffer by a new man. This man loves her and does everything in his power to destroy her. This film is a sad film. It shows how Tom is heartbroken. He doesn't love his wife. She is poor and has no money. He gives up everything to go to London to find her. He has to put his wife in the ground because he loves her so much. His life and marriage is at a stand still. He has no real friends. He has no money. He has no friends. But, he doesn't care. He's not going to die. Tom's life is to be worth more than money. This film is very sad and sad. I have to say this film is very well done. I haven't seen anything quite like it. I've seen a lot of films. I haven't seen anything like this. I have to say this is a very beautiful film. I would say it is a 10/10.

This is a movie based on a book that was once a movie itself. It is a movie that captures the essence of The Author's book that could be about a time of war, a time of love, or any other time in your life. The focus of this movie is on young Shelley who grew up in England during World War One and her efforts to follow the times and come of age as a young girl. It is a movie that tells the true story of a woman and her amazing story of being a young woman in England in World War One, and then her rise to great fame and all the hardships that came with it. What makes this movie so unique and extraordinary is the fact that this movie is based on a book by The Author that was a movie that was never finished because the book was not finished. It was never finished because the book was just starting and the author had not completed it. This movie is a movie that never was finished because it was never finished by The Author. This movie is a story about a brave woman who rose to fame in the movie world of the 1920's. It is a story about a woman who saw the end of the world coming but also the beginning of the next one. She was the pioneer of television and wrote the book and movie she wanted to be written. This movie was one that changed the world and the way people viewed the movie world. One of the most important things about this movie is the director's vision of making this movie a movie that was worth watching. The director who made this movie wanted to make the movie an all in all movie and not just a movie for girls or for the movie lovers. This is a movie that should be watched by anyone and everyone.

I'm looking at the reviews here and wonder what the fuss is all about. Well, here is my take. I was surprised to see such a low rating. I thought the film was wonderfully made. It captures the mood of its era, just as Elizabethan times did. The production is top-notch, and the acting is, indeed, superb. The film does not shy away from the brutal details of death, nor does it overdo the cinematography or gore. It's an accurate portrait of the time in which it was made, not some day-in-the-life piece. Like Shakespeare, it makes its own rules, and doesn't shy away from dark and bloody themes. However, it also makes its own rules and doesn't tell you how to interpret the script. It tells you what you will see. If you're looking for an action-packed film, one that will fill you with blood and passion, you won't find it here. The main character is not a maniac. He's the sort of guy who would rather take a break from what he's doing, instead of dealing with the consequences of his actions. He may get pissed off, but he does not want to give up. So, you don't get a totally unrealistic portrayal of him. I was especially impressed with the period detail. For instance, in the film, there is a scene where a young man is hanged by his wrists. There is a matching pair of shirts on the hanging man, in which the young man is wearing one of the shirts. On the other side of the table, is a pair of typical English shabby suits, and on the walls in the background are pictures of all the other hanged men. The scene itself is not that interesting, but the fact that it is presented like that makes it more realistic. I was especially pleased to see that the director was careful to choose the clothing for each hanging man. You can clearly see that they were in different periods of the period. I think it was a very clever thing to do. In the original play, there is the story of two young men, one hanged and the other alive. One is an apprentice painter who is paid to hang the other. The one who's still hanging is not an apprentice. He's an experienced painter. The other one, who is hanging, is a squire. He is the teacher who instructs the young one. The painter is a peasant, and the squire is a commoner. He is told to hang the one who is still hanging, to be in a position where his throat can be slit. This is important in the story, but it is very much ignored in the film. He hangs this one, but not the one who was dying. This is a little detail that I think the director did very well. I think it worked very well for this film, because the characters are interesting, the setting is authentic, and the setting is present

I watched this movie last night. I know how this movie's going to end, and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the film because it was about a very talented woman, but also a woman who is a gifted artist and a brilliant scholar. The dialogue was very strong, and the actors did a wonderful job. I really enjoyed the whole cast. I did not like the movie's ending, which I think was just a little disappointing. I would have preferred a different ending. I thought that a better ending would have allowed for a better ending. The film is about a woman named Mary Shelley, who is accused of writing a novel about the husband of a philosopher. The movie is about the book and the woman's life before and after the accusations. There are many famous figures in the movie, such as W. Somerset Maugham, Virginia Woolf, and Jack Nicholson. The only actor that I did not like was Peter O'Toole, who plays the man who is accused of the wife's murder. I thought he was very good. However, I do not know if he was in the film for the whole length of the film or if he was just in it for a few scenes. This movie is also about a woman who wants to be a writer. I enjoyed the acting of the woman portrayed by Nicole Kidman. I also enjoyed the acting of Hugh Jackman, who plays her husband. I also enjoyed the writing and directing of the film. The film's soundtrack is very good. I have a CD of the music, and I am very pleased with the music. The cinematography was very good. I also enjoyed the use of the music in the film. Overall, I did not think that the movie was bad. It was a good film. I also thought that the ending was disappointing. The film is worth watching, and I hope that other people will enjoy it as well. I rate this film 7/10.

What happens when you put a woman on the wrong side of history? On a continent where women were castrated and slaved in the name of science and society and where they were sold as wives and concubines to foreign monarchs? "The Last Queen" tells the tale of Elizabeth II, who rules the British Empire during the nineteenth century. The film is a rich and profound look at the difficulties of doing such a thing, as well as the sense of duty to be at the center of it. I liked the idea of a woman being in charge, and the fact that Elizabeth has an almost pathological ability to be able to fix things in such a way that there's no room for error. But when you cut to the end, you realize that something is missing. The film's ending suggests that Elizabeth is going to be the last ruler of the British Empire, yet she's just barely not around to see it. Perhaps the problem is that she's not the ruler she seems to be. Elizabeth is probably quite normal, and in her final days there's no indication of having a mental illness that might be the cause of her inability to recognize what is going on around her. One wonders if there's something more going on in her mind. The film doesn't answer that question. I think the way the film ends is ambiguous, and I don't think the viewer can get the impression that Elizabeth is mad at all. I would have preferred to have seen the film come to a close with the last scene with the two of them, Elizabeth with a bowl of apple juice, and Edward with a glass of wine, and then we'd have seen Elizabeth's own power gradually overtake Edward, and the power that we saw in her eyes become apparent. But the ending is a bit muddled.
