    In the opening sequence of The Invisible Woman, the movie (screened at TIFF) about Charles Dickens late-life affair with a young actress, we meet the lady concerned, Ellen Ternan, in her own later life. Shes married and has given up the stage, though shes putting her early training to use by supervising juvenile amateur dramatics. Somebody asks her whether she was the inspiration for Lucie Manette, the heroine of A Tale of Two Cities. She doesnt deny it, but doesnt seem to want to dwell on the matter. Neither does the film, which is a pity.
