About the Author:

Kenneth Branagh, was already a celebrated stage actor when, in 1988, he made his debut as a film director with Henry V; among other films he has directed are Dead Again, Peter's Friends, Much Ado About Nothing, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, In Bleak Midwinter, Hamlet, and Love's Labour's Lost; as a performer he has been seen in Conspiracy, Celebrity, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Review:

Newmarket's pictorial moviebook is quite interesting, with not only the film's screenplay and photos, but also a thoughtful director's note by Branagh himself, and an introduction into Shelley. -- American Bookseller
