On the subject of Dicksns, Ralph Fiennes stars and directs ‘The Invisible Woman’, a biopic that depicts the alleged relationship between Dickens and an actress Ellen Ternam. Writes CSM:
‘The Invisible Woman’ is based on writer Claire Tomalin’s book of the same name which posits that Dickens and Ternan had a secret relationship and lived together for many years. The details of Dickens and Ternan’s relationship have never been entirely clear, with the circumstances of it much debated by historians. Dickens very publicly left his wife in 1858.
The movie opens Dec. 25 in the US. See AOC FP trailer.
