It’s generally understood that Ralph FiennesThe Invisible Woman (Sony Classics, 12.25) is the story of a secret affair between Charles Dickens (Fiennes) and Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones). I shouldn’t comment as I wasn’t able to see more than 45 minutes worth in Toronto, but it has the mood and the tone of a properly constrained Victorian period piece. And there’s no denying that Fiennes’ voice is a beautiful instrument. One look at the fat woman playing Dickens’ wife and your heart goes out.
