Movie: The Invisible Woman

The Invisible Woman tells the story of Nelly Ternan, mistress to Charles Dickens. It succeeds on several levels: as a moving romance, as the sort of lovingly constructed period piece that the BBC does so well, and as a social history of gender relations in the not-so-distant past. I enjoyed it on all levels.

The NYT review is both less positive and not very insightful.

Highly recommended.
