Director: Ralph Fiennes
Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones

Set in the mid to late 1800’s, this is the little known true story of the secret love affair between Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes) and Nelly Robinson (Felicity Jones), a young actress half his age. Dickens was married and owing to the “respectability” of the period his relationship with Nelly was kept secret, so this adulteress lived the life of “invisibility”.

The Invisible Woman depicts Dickens as a conceited, controlling and highly self-opinionated man, whose world selfishly revolved around himself and the theatre. Fiennes who has an uncanny resemblance to Dickens, perfectly restores the writer to life and Jones delivers an emotionally charged performance as the young lady who upon meeting Dickens develops feeling for him, leading to life altering ramifications for both of them.

Beautifully filmed and complimented by a seemingly poetic script, the era is brilliantly brought to life and the visual representation of the 1880’s cannot be faltered. Annoyingly the story goes from present to past in flashback sequences, as Nelly’s thoughts drift from one time to another. This detracts from the film as it becomes increasingly difficult to know at what time period the story is at.

The Invisible Woman is a long, drawn-out and complex film which will only appeal to a minority audience. In all its grandness, it’s extremely slow moving, tiresome to watch and may prove over-bearing for most audiences.
