Life and facts of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, who at 16 met 21 year old poet Percy Shelley, resulting in the writing of Frankenstein.
Mick Jagger read Shelley at a concert in Hyde Park in 1969, soon after the drowning death of The Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones. Shelley's first wife drowned herself in Hyde Park in 1816.

Even though the movie is clearly based on real people, including of course Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron, Claire Clairmont and many others, the end titles include the ridiculous disclaimer that "The characters depicted in this motion picture are fictitious, and any similarity to the history of any person is entirely coincidental."
