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 (THE 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. A QUIET PASSION opens in Chicago in May. DCP digital widescreen. (Description courtesy of Music Box Films)
