Nelly (Felicity Jones), a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes) 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 brilliant amateur actor - 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'.

This film about the final stages of life is a moving chronicle of five hospice patients whose stories are in turns honest, humorous and heartbreaking.
Burt Reynolds stars as a man who loses his will to live after he learns that he has only three months to live. At first he seeks solace from a priest (Reynolds' first confessional in 20 years). The priest's celestial comment is "Wow!" Reynolds attempts suicide -- and fails, waking up from his effort in an insane asylum. He urges a schizophrenic fellow patient to do him in. Failure. Reynolds' doomed journey of self-destruction will encounter Sally Field, Dom DeLuise, Joanne Woodward, Carl Reiner, Kristy McNichol, Robby Benson, Myrna Loy, Pat O'Brien and others. In the end, the "life force" prevails. And Reynolds decides to live, if even for the few months he has left. Burt Reynolds directed himself in this dark, yet often farcical comedy. Music by Paul Williams.
One of the most powerfully intimate films ever made about the final stages of life, The End began as a bold experiment. In November 2001, director Kirby Dick invited terminal patients and their families in a hospice program to take home cameras and record their last experiences on earth. Surprisingly, many patients and families embraced the concept. The resulting film is a profound and moving chronicle of five hospice patients whose stories are in turns honest, humorous, and heartbreaking. Examining such profound issues as the meaning of suffering, the desire for love and forgiveness, and the horror of death, the film is an intensely personal meditation on the experience of death, both for the dying and for those who must go on living.
Equal parts thriller, drama, horror and mystery, The End captivates with a highly original and playful modern noir that unleashes surprises which upturn any conventional relationship an audience has with fictional cinema.
