(1998) dir Bill Condon w/Ian McKellen, Brendan Fraser, Lynn Redgrave, Lolita Davidovich [105 min; 35mm]
In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Harvard is putting on a “Frankenweek” conference and accompanying film series at the Harvard Film Archive. As an addendum, we’ve added this screening of the acclaimed biopic about James Whale, the director of the 1930’s classics Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein.

Staff Pick: Kim, Jessie

“An engrossing, unusual, imaginatively executed bit of psychological gamesmanship.” – Dennis Harvey, Variety

“This movie is obviously a dream come true for Condon, and he delivers it with precision, care, love, and intelligence.” – Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
