Mary Shelley's 1818 horror classic, Frankenstein, gets a 21st-century update in this innovative British production, directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) and adapted by Nick Dear. The high-definition recording was made on the London Stage of the acclaimed National Theatre, and now this 2011 broadcast returns to the big screen as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations. The classic tale of a mad scientist and his ghoulish creation, the production features actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting), who both won Olivier Awards for alternating the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature.

I was at first a little put off by the fact that the event was high up (I took the stairs, not thinking to look for an elevator!) and in a small room with a capacity of 60 (about 50 in attendance), the projector in the middle of the room and a 6' X 10' screen (approximately). I was expecting a more formal venue like a movie theater - if small. None of that mattered once the movie started. It was great and I recommend it to everyone. The film referenced a lot of different phenomena and people which I jotted down to look up/google later. Shaydac definitely had a life-altering experience and in sharing his journey helps to get those of us watching to be open to change in our own lives. I'm grateful to the NY Society for Ethical Culture and Goldstar for making the film available this way, but it should receive a wider audience. It is available on DVD and maybe through Netflix or a similar provider. Once you see it you'll want to share it, so I recommend buying a copy!
