The first trailer for Ralph Fiennes’ second directorial effort The Invisible Woman has been released online. The film revolves around the secret love affair between Charles Dickens and his mistress, with Fiennes playing Dickens and Like Crazy star Felicity Jones playing the titular Nelly Ternan. Instead of sensationalizing the story, the film looks to humanize the author and his relationship with the young woman as a tragedy of sorts, with their inability to go public proving to be an ever-existent limit on the extent of their love. As a big fan of Jones, I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings to the film with her portrayal of Ternan.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander, and Michelle Fairley. The Invisible Woman opens in theaters later this year.
