A Quiet Passion

Watch Trailer Buy Tickets
“I’m thrilled to say that it’s an absolute drop-dead masterwork…. Davies has been among the world’s best filmmakers, certainly not as concealed or unheralded in his time as Dickinson was in hers, but not nearly receiving the acclaim or the support that he has deserved. A QUIET PASSION will take its place as one of his finest creations, as one of the great movies of the time. – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

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 (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.
