Ralph Fiennes shows he's as meticulous a director as he is an actor, with his sophomore directorial effort The Invisible Woman, says CBC film reviewer Eli Glasner.

The period drama explores a little known story in the life of Charles Dickens: a secret, later-in-life affair the famed writer had with Nelly Ternan, an 18-year-old enraptured with his work (portrayed by Felicity Jones).
