With the Holiday’s fast approaching, most of will probably watch a version of “A Christmas Carol”, but how much do we know about the man behind the classics, Charles Dickens. With that in mind, you can checkout the trailer for Ralph Fiennes’ “The Invisible Woman”, a film that he also stars in.
“The Invisible Woman” follows the legendary English writer who enters into an extramarital affair with a young female admirer named Nelly Ternan, played by the very talented Felicity Jones. In the trailer we see that Ternan is a schoolteacher that has fallen madly in love with Dickens, but she is conflicted due to the fact that he wants to keep their romance a secret. You can check it out for yourself below:
The relationship between Ternan and Dickens was the subject of Claire Tomalin’s book, which the film is based. If you’d like find out a little more about “The Invisible Woman” you can read the official synopsis below:
“Nelly (Felicity Jones), a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes) with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. Dickens — famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success — falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. The theatre is a vital arena for Dickens — a brilliant amateur actor – a man more emotionally coherent on the page or on stage, than in life. As Nelly becomes the focus of Dickens’ passion and his muse, for both of them secrecy is the price, and for Nelly a life of “invisibility”.”
“The Invisible Woman” will open in the States in limited release before releasing wide in the UK in February.
