The Invisible Woman

The Invisible Woman

“The Invisible Woman,” adapted from Claire Tomalin’s 1990 biography, is the true story of Dickens’s longtime clandestine affair with Nelly Ternan, who was 27 years his junior. They met in 1857 when Nelly, 18, was appearing in the Collins play “The Frozen Deep,” whose production Dickens oversaw. Dickens at the time was 45.

“The Invisible Woman,”  was directed by and stars Ralph Fiennes who talks to Sean from a London studio.
