Love period pieces. Love Ralph Fiennes. Pacing is a little off and is frustrating to the watching the plot unfold.

I am in awe of The Invisible Woman.
August 7, 2019
What's most audacious are the long silences that pervade the drama: a true luxury in a multiplex culture intent on deafening the viewer.
June 7, 2019
Beautifully shot and performed but lacking in clarity, The Invisible Woman is a series of snapshots rather than a coherent whole.

Fine performances from Fiennes, Jones et al, some beautiful visuals and several excellent scenes keep The Invisible Woman interesting and watchable.

The Invisible Woman is a quietly compelling chronicle of an uneven but binding relationship.

Fiennes has crafted one of the more original heritage movies of recent years.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 21, 2018
This is everything a period drama almost never is: underplayed, witty, poignant and, above all, real.

Fiennes is excellent -- delivering both the charm, charisma and showmanship we expect and the flaws and the weaknesses we do not.

October 10, 2014
It's unhurried yet confident, familiar yet provocative. With fine cinematography by Robert Hardy (Blitz), most 'Expectations' will, indeed, be met.

September 10, 2014
The performances are first-rate -- Fiennes and Jones are stellar, as are Kristin Scott Thomas as Nelly's mother and Tom Hollander as playwright Collins -- and the score and period details are sumptuous. But the film still drags.

The Invisible Woman is a beautiful picture with strong performances, but made unnecessarily convoluted.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
May 14, 2014
The Invisible Woman is so subtle and secretive that it sets a record as the most low-keyed of its usually feverish genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 2, 2014
The Invisible Woman is a fine-looking period piece and Fiennes has an eye for nuance as Dickens tries handling the public news of his private life in a world that has just discovered the thrill of newspaper gossip.

The pleasure and the drama come in watching for the real emotions peeking beneath the fancy costumes and flowery dialogue (by screenwriter Abi Morgan), all the more fierce because they must be repressed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 21, 2014
Solid, beautifully shot and acted, leisurely paced costume drama that can't hide ... that its central love affair is illicit. What I found fascinating was its depiction of just how an affair was run in such a situation - in those days, among such people.

April 16, 2014
The Invisible Woman is a satisfying romantic drama that explores a very complex relationship.

Felicity Jones gives a strong depiction of repressed emotion. Up against Fiennes' Dickens -- all bonhomie, energy, mercurial self-consciousness -- she's a melancholy figure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 16, 2014
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.

April 12, 2014
Exquisitely directed by Fiennes, who also delivers convincingly in his portrayal of Dickens, there is a poetic quality about the film with its dreamy cinematography, ethereal music and wonderful sense of time and place
