A Quiet Passion (2016)
NAME OF FILM: A QUIET PASSION
DIRECTOR(S): Terence Davies
STARRING: Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: The celebrated director of The House of Mirth paints the life of Emily Dickinson in lush, appropriately poetic tones, with a powerful lead performance by Cynthia Nixon as the celebrated American poet and co-starring Jennifer Ehle as her sister Vinnie. Living in self-imposed isolation from the world in her Massachusetts family home, yet still very much a part of high society, Dickinson uses her wit as a safeguard against her struggles with mental health and the patriarchal demands of her time.
