ANGELIKA’S NOTE

In A QUIET PASSION, Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson, personifiying 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. Rated 91% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, A QUIET PASSION was an Official Selection of the Berlin and Toronto International Film Festivals, and is "an absolute drop-dead masterwork," raves The New Yorker.
