Movie about Female Author – 19th Century?

I read a brief write up of writer George Eliot’s life that prompted an old movie memory – but no luck finding the movie I’m thinking of based on her life.

It was a color movie, I must have seen it in the 90’s or 00’s, but it would have been set in late 1800’s or early 1900’s. Main character is a female author who moves into a boarding house and ends up finding work writing a serial for a newspaper under a male pen name.  I believe she meets another writer (male) who she falls in love with and helps finish his novel?

I of course could be smashing up more than one movie into this memory.
