A Quiet Passion

A Quiet Passion

A FILM BY: Terence Davies
WRITTEN BY: Terence Davies
STARRING: Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Duncan Duff

Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) exquisitely evokes Dickinson’s deep attachment to her close-knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.

“An absolute, drop-dead masterwork." - THE NEW YORKER

“A bold and brilliant study of the American poet." - SLANT MAGAZINE
