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 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.
“Cynthia Nixon is simply magnificent as Emily Dickinson in director Terence Davies’ gentle yet subversively fierce and funny look at the life and art of the great American poet.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“A Quiet Passion is wittier, in its early stretches, than anyone might have foreseen, but it’s when the door closes, and the Dickinsons are alone with their trepidations, that the movie draws near to its rightful severity.” -Anthony Lane, New Yorker
