A Quiet Passion

Cinema

Directed by Terence Davies | 2016 | UK, Belgium | Starring Cynthia Nixon, Keith Carradine, Jennifer Ehle | 125mins

Terence Davies (Of Time and the City, Sunset Song) returns with this spirited and refreshingly funny biopic of 19th century American poet Emily Dickinson, with a superb central performance by Cynthia Nixon.

Dickinson's life - appropriate to her poetry - was one of great interiority: she was born and died in Amherst, Massachusetts, never married and lived a reclusive existence while writing some of the most piercingly beautiful, directly emotional and innovative verse ever published.

But while the circumstances of her life tend to suggest her as a quiet and self-effacing soul, Davies works hard to show her as a passionate and conflicted figure who continually questioned the patriarchal society in which she lived.

"An absolute drop-dead masterwork" - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
