Drama, Period and Historical
The secret relationship between 19th-century writer Charles Dickens and an 18-year-old actress is explored in this sophisticated and well-performed British period drama. Directed by and starring Ralph Fiennes, the atmospheric tale opens 13 years after Dickens’ death, as the now school teacher Nelly reflects on the events that still haunt her. While her affair with the brilliantly successful and much older Dickens turned her into the author’s greatest passion and muse, it came at a huge emotional cost. Because not only was he married with ten children, but his high social standing made divorce unthinkable, forcing Nelly into a painful life of invisibility to protect Dickens from scandal and safeguard his career.
