The Invisible Woman

Review: Charles Dickens is at the height of his career. He leaves his family and meets a much younger woman who becomes his lover until his death.
Director: Ralph Fiennes
Actors: Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Burke and Tom Hollander
Year: 2013
Genre: Biography, Drama, History and Romance
Conclusion: 3/5
This is an adaptation of a novel by Claire Tomalin. I think that Ralph Fiennes has done a superb job of directing this and also staring as such a diverse character. The cinematography is amazing. Some of the scenes could have been from a Victorian painting especially of the still images. Felicity Jones is well cast for the film and is the strongest character. She brings so much to the film. Lovely to see a period costume film. The script was very well written. You can’t help but feel sorry for Felicity Jones’ character as she won’t be able to make it is as an actress which she really wants in life but with getting together with Dickens he was able to provide security and a home. I couldn’t help but think what the story means for her and her way of life. Also I felt sorry for Dickens’s wife and kids and how she must have felt with everything going on around her. Ralph Fiennes and Felicity Jones both stared together in Cemetery Junction (2010). Kristin Scott Thomas gives her usual polished performance.
