One of the world's greatest writers, a torrid affair ... the drama writes itself, and certainly that must be what attracted Ralph Fiennes to "The Invisible Woman." The film got off to a steady if not spectacular start at Venice and Toronto, but Sony Pictures Classics is hoping to build it up to a full head of steam by time it hits theaters in Decembers.

The Invisible Woman Ralph Fiennes Felicity Jones

One of the world's greatest writers, a torrid affair ... the drama writes itself, and certainly that must be what attracted Ralph Fiennes to "The Invisible Woman." The film got off to a steady if not spectacular start at Venice and Toronto, but Sony Pictures Classics is hoping to build it up to a full head of steam by time it hits theaters in Decembers.

The first trailer has dropped, bringing viewers into the world inhabited by the hugely successful and popular author—played by Fiennes, who also directs—though his personal life is far from stellar. Though married, he begins a relationship with an admirer (Felicity Jones) and naturally, all kinds of complications arise. But reviewing the movie out of Telluride earlier this year, we thought it was well put together, but somewhat dramatically familiar, writing: "...once the film establishes that these two kept their affair going on that same middle ground for years (13, to be exact, though you’d have to look that up), it’s hard to find that much tragedy in their plight or sense of loss for a great love thwarted."

Still, these are two actors we'd watch in anything and you can see them for yourself when "The Invisible Woman" opens on December 25th.
