      Critics Consensus

      Its deliberate pace will frustrate some viewers, but for fans of handsomely mounted period drama, The Invisible Woman offers visual as well as emotional cinematic nourishment.

      Philippa Hawker The Age (Australia) Felicity Jones gives a strong depiction of repressed emotion. Up against Fiennes' Dickens -- all bonhomie, energy, mercurial self-consciousness -- she's a melancholy figure. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 16, 2014 Full Review David Stratton The Australian The Invisible Woman , overall, is a film of intelligence and subtlety, and Jones's performance as Nelly reflects exactly those qualities - she brings Nelly, with all her complexities, doubts and conflicted loyalties, vividly to life. Rated: 4/5 Apr 16, 2014 Full Review Geoffrey Macnab Independent (UK) Fiennes and his team recreate 19th-century England with a precision that, in its more stifling moments, rekindles memories of Merchant Ivory. Rated: 3/5 Feb 14, 2014 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Comes with great expectations, most of which, unfortunately are not met. Rated: 2/5 Feb 1, 2021 Full Review Joanne Laurier World Socialist Web Site A dark, brooding piece, Fiennes's film is a fairly trite and superficial rendering of an episode in the life of one of the greatest and most popular writers of all time... Aug 13, 2020 Full Review Carla Renata The Curvy Film Critic Love period pieces. Love Ralph Fiennes. Pacing is a little off and is frustrating to the watching the plot unfold.

      Audience Member Story line drama telling by honestly, just An Author selfish love himself destroy life of teenager girl. I cannot accept him! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review isla s This is a slow and emotional watch, ideal for fans of period drama. I found it quite engrossing and intriguing to get to know Dickens' love interest at the time its set. The cast do well giving good performances and the dialogue was quite thoughtful at times, although at other times its more a case of what isn't said, than what is and indeed I ebjoyed the dialogue free scenes as they had an almost dream like quality to the and allow the viewer to contemplate what the characters on screen may be thinking etc. Its a thoughtful watch, a bit sobering at times, perhaps even somewhat haunting but a good one. In any case I'd recommend this film. I even enjoyed the piano music played while the credits rolled at the end of the film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Barclay The train wreck which was the climax was seriously flawed. Whether Mr. Dickens was forced to betray and then abandon his injured lover was as motiveless as Nelly's subsequent sequestering alone by herself. There as so many loose ends in this script that it must be summarized as a loose end which probably has little relevance to the real Charles Dickens. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/22 Full Review georgan g Beautiful to watch. Acting perfect. Based on truth. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Bill Your review will help others decide whether to watch.
