A Quiet Passion (12A)

Friday 28th April 2017 - Thursday 4th May 2017

Terence Davies returns with an elegant and deeply moving biopic of poet Emily Dickinson, played with sensitivity and rebellious spirit by Cynthia Nixon. Dickinson is a nonconformist as poet, daughter or woman of faith and she finds herself at odds with all around her. Featuring a finely curated selection of her poems in voiceover, A Quiet Passion details many facets of Dickinson’s character: her wit and linguistic command; an inescapable melancholy, and her poetry’s transcendent ability to connect with other people in ways she cannot. Nixon is superb in a role spanning Dickinson’s adult life. As a biopic, its reach extends well beyond existing lovers of her poetry (although you’ll be challenged not to be a fan by the end).
Dir. Terence Davis, UK, 2016, 125 mins.
Cast. Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Duncan Duff.
