“Every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.”
–– Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens was a world-famous novelist. Yet his most fascinating story was one he never told – the story of his own forbidden love affair.
Join us on Friday, March 14 for “The Invisible Woman,” a movie that tells the true story of the great author’s longtime secret affair with young Nelly Ternan. Adapted from the acclaimed 1990 biography of the same name and directed by Ralph Fiennes, “The Invisible Woman” stars Fiennes as the Victorian novelist and Felicity Jones as Nelly. Years later and after his death, through the memories of happily married mother and schoolteacher Nelly, we witness the famous novelist fall for her, as we learn how their forbidden affair ultimately forced her into a life of invisibility.
As an added treat, Filmworks will present this British biopic in the traditional 35mm format. Don’t miss the film that Variety calls “brilliantly acted, vibrantly alive, and pulsing with subtle eroticism” – and your chance to discover another story from Dickens after all these years.
