  • 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

  • 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

  • Jones (Like Crazy) gives Nelly's tragic plight a palpable anguish. There is no doubt that Dickens - who was mad about theater, about acting, about inhabiting other lives onstage and in the pages of his books - was in love with Nelly. 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.
