The life of poet Emily Dickinson is brought to the screen with this gorgeous, formally exacting biopic. Shifting elegantly from deadpan drawing room comedy to spiritual tragedy, A Quiet Passion tracks Dickinson from boarding school adolescence to reclusive Amherst adulthood (alongside father Keith Carradine and sister Jennifer Ehle). With a fiercely intelligent lead performance from Cynthia Nixon and a soundtrack of Charles Ives and Dickinson’s own verse, Davies (The Long Day Closes) masterfully evokes the inner world of one of our greatest artists.
