National Theatre Live�s 2011 broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebration. Selling out the entire run, Frankenstein won the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. 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 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.
