Story


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".

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a credible, captivating story that begins slowly but draws the viewer in with its masterful performances and first-rate filmmaking..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..finding traces of Nelly Ternan in Dickens' work may be profitable for literary scholars, but for viewers seeking a powerful love story, there's nothing much to see here..”
by Mike D'Angelo [A.V. Club]
“..it's very pretty, but despite all the walking, we never get anywhere..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
