After moving behind the camera in 2011 with a striking adaptation of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus Ralph Fiennes’ second directorial outing had its UK premiere this evening, following a very successful festival run.
The Invisible Woman has Fiennes taking on the role of Charles Dickens in a turbulent time in the author’s life, when he embarked on a secret affair with a young actress (played by Felicity Jones). The film has garnered positive reviews already and Fiennes’ charisma and aptitude as a director allows the film to breathe, something which was lacking in the suffocating miasma of Coriolanus.
Felicity Jones and he shine on screen and our chaps Colin Hart and Ben Mortimer took to the red carpet this evening to interview the cast and crew of The Invisible Woman.
We’ll be adding our interviews below, check back for more as the night goes on.
