In 1857, the 45 year-old Charles Dickens (Fiennes) falls in love with 18 year-old actress Nelly Ternan (Jones), who will be his muse/mistress for the rest of his life. Years later, the new life she has made is haunted by that guilty secret relationship.
One for lovers of ravishing craft, although the elusive emotional engagement is frustrating.
