The Invisible Woman [cert tbc]- (one-off CineCity Film Festival screening)

About the film

Ralph Fiennes’ directorial return after CORIALANUS examines the secret love affair between Charles Dickens (Fiennes) and the young actress Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones).
Visually striking and dramatically refined, Ralph Fiennes’ (Coriolanus) impeccably directed second feature centres on the secret affair between Charles Dickens (Fiennes) and the young actress Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones) which commenced at the height of his career, when she was just 18, and lasted until his death. Their love story unfolds from the perspective of Nelly some years later as she directs a group of village boys in a stage rendition of The Frozen Deep, the production on which she first met Dickens. Her intimate knowledge of the text brings back a flood of disquieting memories of her time with Dickens, threatening to disrupt the stability of her new life. Fiennes’ nuanced direction of Abi Morgan’s (The Iron Lady, Shame) screenplay illuminates the exquisite pain of their affair: the moral dilemma for Dickens, whose marriage and family life unravels as he begins to court Nelly; and the sense of entrapment for Nelly as she is forced to live her love in secret, or not at all. Based on the biographical book by Claire Tomalin, and featuring a terrific cast (including Kristin Scott Thomas as Nelly’s mother and Tom Hollander as Wilkie Collins), this restrained and intimate period romance also gracefully lays bare the gender politics of the era

About the Meet Up 

Hi I'm Kate, a regular Meetup movie goer,  come and join me for this good looking film which has great reviews.  I'll be in the upstairs bar at Duke of Yorks from 5:30pm and if anyone's up for it, we'll go for a drink and/or a bite to eat, and a chat about the film, somewhere nearby afterwards. 

As this is a one-off screening, I suggest you buy your ticket in advance. 

Hope to see you there!

    Interesting film but quite disconnected at times leaving all if us asking questions, such as when did Dickens die, how long was he with Nellie and several others. Also seem to lack a bit if passion for a love story.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
