Followed by Q & A with Terence Davies

The story of 19th Century American poet Emily Dickinson is brought to vivid life in a remarkably sensitive biopic by director Terence Davies, exploring her early days as a young schoolgirl, through to her later years as a recluse. Now recognised as a genius that penned some of the most important verses in American Literature, the poet was virtually unknown in her lifetime, leaving behind a legacy of stunning, astute work that still resonates deeply today. Featuring a curated selection of her poems in voiceover, A QUIET PASSION details every facet of Dickinson’s character; her wit, her humour and the intimate, close-knit relationship she had with her family. Cynthia Nixon commands a superb performance in the title role, while Davies’ elegant direction allows the audience to connect with the hopes, dreams and disappointments of one of the greatest poets of all time.
