Ralph Fiennes is compelling and convincing as Charles Dickens, a man struggling to hide a passionate love affair while living in the spotlight.
Nelly is a quiet Victorian woman: wife, mother, schoolteacher...and mistress. Years earlier, the struggling 18-year-old actress fell in love with an older, married man: Britain’s preeminent creative force, the novelist Charles Dickens. Can romance survive the suffocating secrecy necessary when loving someone in the spotlight? Ralph Fiennes’ striking and convincing performance as Dickens, a man uncomfortable in his own skin, is restrained, compelling and utterly persuasive. D: Ralph Fiennes, UK, 2013, 111m
