Charles Dickens may be famous for having written some of history's greatest stories, but his own life story is probably one of the most touching of all. During a major peak in his career, he finds himself madly in love with actress Nelly Ternan who deeply admires all his literary works. He takes regular trips to London to visit her despite already being married to Catherine Thomson for more than 20 years, and Nelly's mother Frances regularly voices her concerns about what the relationship could mean for her 18-year-old daughter's future. Despite all odds, Dickens is determined to spend the rest of his life with his new lover even if that means a scandalous separation from his wife. In a bid to lower the impact it might have on his career, he vows to keep his new relationship a secret from the public.
'The Invisible Woman' is a heartwrenching drama based on the love life of Charles Dickens as it was told in Claire Tomalin's 1991 book 'The Invisible Woman: The story of Nelly Ternan and Charles Dickens'. The book was later turned into a play by Simon Gray entitled 'Little Nell'. The movie is directed by and stars Ralph Fiennes ('Coriolanus') with a screenplay by Abi Morgan ('The Hour', 'The Iron Lady', 'Shame'). It will be released in UK cinemas on February 7th 2014.
