★★☆☆☆"This is a tale of woe; this is a tale of sorrow. A love denied, a love restored, to live beyond tomorrow." This melancholic soliloquy is the poetic précis for Ralph Fiennes' The Invisible Woman (2013). A detailed realisation of Claire Tomalin's eponymous biography, the film depict the early life of Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones), the illegitimate lover of Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes). With his latest offering, Fiennes has shifted his gaze from one literary icon to another. Whilst his adaptation of Shakespeare's Coriolanus looked to contextualise the Bard's prose within a contemporary setting, The Invisible Woman acts to resuscitate the lost words of a woman whose story almost went untold.
