A Quiet Passion - Opens June 23rd
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.
"Nixon delivers a masterful performance, giving us a heroine who can't cease digging herself into ever deeper holes. She's never out of step with the film's graceful pace and narrative development." - Minneapolis Star Tribune.
"It is through Nixon's brilliant performance that "A Quiet Passion" illuminates, complicates and ultimately transcends the mystery of its subject's confinement." - Los Angeles Times.
"I'm thrilled to say that it's an absolute drop-dead masterwork." - New Yorker.
