Invisible Woman, The

A superior peice. Vibrantly alive, pulsing with subtle eroticism.
-Scott Foundas, Variety
It's excellent, touched with that lived-in, slightly shabby feel of life as it's lived that too many period pieces lack.
-Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice
Ms. Jones gives a performance of extraordinary subtlety and delicacy. Observing her is like watching a plant whose buds slowly bloom over time.
-Stephen Holden, NY Times
Period biographical dramas don't come much better.
-Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
Felicity Jones apporte juste ce qu'il faut d'indignation et beaucoup d'intelligence à son rôle.
-Éric Moreault, Le Soleil

Synopsis

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”.
