A Quiet Passion (12A)

UK/2016/125mins/12A. Dir: Terence Davies. With: Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Catherine Bailey, Keith Carradine

Emily Dickinson’s life was one of great interiority, never marrying and confining herself to the town where she was born. But whilst the circumstances suggested someone shy, her poetry revealed a passionate and conflicted woman continually questioning the society in which she lived. With a taut, spirited central performance, this is an insightful unusual biography. 

Please note: Soft Subtitles are not available on this title. We apologise for any inconvenience.

"A Quiet Passion boasts meticulous craft and ornate verbiage in abundance, but confines Cynthia Nixon’s melancholia-stricken performance as arguably America’s greatest poet in an emotional straitjacket of variously arch storytelling tones"
