The Invisible Woman

A married woman (Felicity Jones) reminisces back to her love affair with Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes) during his latter years of success until his death. The Invisible Woman is a sumptuously mounted production with Fiennes, who also directed, contributing his usually commanding performance but the film is highly turgid with an aimless, threadbare plot detailing a relationship that is never explored and a leading turn from Jones who brings very little and offers even less insight into her character.
