“A Quiet Passion” does something precious few films about writers attempt, much less pull off. Masterfully precise in its language, its delineation of physical space and its sensitivity to its characters’ emotional and moral states, Davies’ film utterly collapses the distance between its subject’s outer and inner lives. The director’s patient, rigorous pursuit of a higher form of artistic truth merges with Dickinson’s own.” – Justin Chang, LA Times
Written and directed by Terence Davies and starring Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson.
