A Quiet Passion

NYTimes: ‘A Quiet Passion’ Poetically Captures Emily Dickinson

I have a passion for Emily Dickinson. My mentor in poetry and the way she chose to live her life. – j.kiley

A Quiet Passion Trailer

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.
