    Very good at pointing out the social difficulties surrounding the Dickens-Ternan relationship, the power dynamics within it and the lasting effects of it. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The Invisible Woman gives us a plausible image of the great man in the fullness of his celebrity, and an affecting portrait of the woman who lived much of her life in his shadow. show more

    Terrible. Amateurish, confusing and pompous, with disembowled plot lines, overly dark scenes, unfocused -- literally -- and jarring hand-held jerking camera scenes overwhelmed whatever good acting existed. Been there, done that with the French in the 60\'s.

    Very, very slow moving movie. I turned to my wife to tell her I was falling a sleep only to find that she was sleeping.
