Frankenstein - by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein returns to international cinemas this Halloween, to mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s most famous novel. Encores in Finnkino cinemas on Monday 22.10. at 18.00 and Mon 29.10. at 18.00 in Helsinki (Maxim), Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Oulu, Tampere (Plevna) and Turku.

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, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. October 22: Jonny Lee Miller as Frankenstein, Benedict Cumberbatch as Creature / October 29: Benedict Cumberbatch as Frankenstein, Jonny Lee Miller as Creature.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s 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.

In English, also subtitles in English.
