Mathias quickly learns that the apartment is a "viager" – an ancient French system for buying and selling apartments – and that he will not actually get possession of the apartment until Mathilde dies.

While working with a Parisian real-estate dealer (Dominique Pinon), to sell his contract for the apartment, Mathias discovers that Mathilde and his father were more to each other than mere tenant and landlord...

REVIEWS My Old Lady - Sins of the father

THE INVISIBLE WOMAN (2014)
Starring Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones, Kristin Scott Thomas and Tom Hollander. Directed by Ralph Fiennes.

The true story tells of the secret love affair between Dickens and the young theatre actress Nelly Ternan. Dickens was 45 when he met Ternan, then 18, in 1857. Their relationship remained secret from the public, even after Dickens's separation from his wife the following year. Ternan travelled with the author for the rest of his life. After his death, she continued the Dickensian love of deception: she married a man 12 years her junior, having disguised her own age as 23, rather than 37; and hid her past relationship with the most famous writer of the day. As a result, Ternan’s story is one of someone who almost wasn’t there; who vanished into thin air. Her name, dates, family and experiences very nearly disappeared from the record for good.

REVIEWS The Invisible Woman - A discomforting affair
