At the height of his career, Charles Dickens meets a younger woman who becomes his secret lover until his death.
This appears to be a fascinating movie about one of best-kept secrets from the Victorian time. The mistress, who ultimately cased the separation of Dickens and his wife, was unknown until the death of his children. Only then did the truth come out although few personal documents describing the affair in detail were recovered. Nowadays the fact Dickens had a mistress of his own daughter’s age can do little to tarnish the writer’s sterling reputation. I’m still disturbed yet can’t deny the fact that stranger things have happened. However, I’d love to see the story of a woman who exercised a considerable amount of influence on his writing.
