Sony Classics is going with Ralph Fiennes “Invisible Woman,” a story about Charles Dickens secret affair while he was married, for 12.25.
The film shows at Toronto, and this date suggests they think it is a viable awards contender. Fiennes earlier directed Corialnus, and stars as Dickens, Felicity Jones as the girlfriend. Kristen Scott-Thomas costars.
This year’s race is in the early stages of formation. We won’t know nearly enough for another three months or so, as usual.
Interesting. Perhaps more Actor, Actress, and Supporting Actress contenders. Maybe Original Screenplay too?
