A Quiet Passion

Buy Tickets


(2016) dir Terence Davies w/Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Duncan Duff, Keith Carradine, Jodhi May, Joanna Bacon, Emma Bell [125 min; DCP]
The revered poet Emily Dickinson – played by Cynthia Nixon in a fantastic turn – is brought to life on screen in this beautiful, understated film from the great British director, Terence Davies.

“It is through Nixon’s brilliant performance that “A Quiet Passion” illuminates, complicates and ultimately transcends the mystery of its subject’s confinement.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“I’m thrilled to say that it’s an absolute drop-dead masterwork.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker

“‘A Quiet Passion’ is the work of a master craftsman whose interest has always been the ways outer reality frames and shapes our inner landscapes.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

Film Notes – “‘A Quiet Passion’: Poetry Alive,” by Hannah Kinney-Kobre
