A Quiet Passion

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.

“ It's not easy to do justice to such a beloved, enigmatic artist, but "A Quiet Passion" was well worth the wait.”

Stephanie Merry - Washington Post

“Davies doesn't shrink from the challenges this darkened mood poses for his audience.”

David Stratton - The Australian
