National Theatre Live’s 2011 broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations.
Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.
Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs a sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, CBS’s Elementary) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.
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 friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.
Version 1: Jonny Lee Miller as Dr. Frankenstein, Benedict Cummberbatch as the Monster will be shown Saturday at 5pm and Sunday at 2pm.
Version 2: Benedict Cummberbatch as Dr. Frankenstein, Jonny Lee Miller as the Monster will be shown Friday at 7pm and Saturday at 2pm.
As a part of the National Theatre Live series, “Frankenstein” was recorded live in London. Sie FilmCenter is the exclusive Denver-area venue for this thrilling series of great plays.
DIRECTOR: Danny Boyle
