Fiennes directed and stars as Charles Dickens in the adaptation of Claire Tomalin's book about the writer's romance with a younger woman, Nelly Ternan, played by Felicity Jones.

Scott Thomas, who asked Fiennes for a role in one of his movies after seeing his directorial debut, Coriolanus, travelled from her home in Paris especially for the premiere.
