Sylvan Lake Film Society returns with “The Invisible Woman”, bringing to light the greatest story Charles Dickens never told.

“In 1857, actress Nelly Ternan was performing in London’s Haymarket Theatre when she was first spotted by Charles Dickens. Ternan was 17, while Dickens was 45 and had been married some 20 years. The two began an affair, which was kept a secret from the general public for the duration of their lives. Theirs has since become one of the great love stories in literary history, as alluring for the speculation it inspires as for the details on record as fact.

Based on Claire Tomalin’s biography of the same name, “The Invisible Woman” is a rapturous chronicle of Ternan and Dickens’s relationship, which prompted the end of Dickens’s marriage, survived a train crash, inspired characters and scenarios in some of the author’s most beloved novels, and continued until his death in 1870,” according to Mongrel Media.

“The Invisible Woman” will play at Landmark Cinemas Monday, March 31st, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8, available at the Sylvan Lake Municipal Library until 5 p.m. Monday, or at the theatre that evening. See you there!
