Costume Movies coming out next year

Invisible Woman is coming out next April in Australia

Ralph Fiennes (Coriolanus) makes his second directorial effort with this adaptation of Claire Tomalin’s award-winning biographical novel on Nelly Ternan, the secret lover of Charles Dickens. Fiennes stars as the infatuated Dickens alongside Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) as Ternan and Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient) as Nelly’s mother.

Nelly, a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Dickens, with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. Dickens - famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success - falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. The theatre is a vital arena for Dickens, a man more emotionally coherent on the page or on stage, than in life. As Nelly becomes the focus of Dickens' passion and his muse, for both of them secrecy is the price, and for Nelly a life of "invisibility".


Belle: Based on a true story, about a mixed race girl who grows up with an aristocratic English family in the 18th c. Costumes by Anushia Nieradzik. Coming out in May.

True story period drama that played at Toronto International Film Festival featuring rising star Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Larry Crowne) as Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a British Admiral who convinces his aristocratic uncle and aunt to raise her. But as the years go on, Dido’s social status wavers further as her public image provokes further tension among her peers. Co-stars two-time Oscar nominees Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson as well as Matthew Goode (Stoker) and Harry Potter’s Tom Felton.
