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. On the heels of last year's gorgeously rendered literary adaptation SUNSET SONG, acclaimed British director Terence Davies 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.

“Masterful...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

“A fiercely intelligent, handsome and affecting rendering...It’s the kind of breath of fresh air experience that sneaks up on you and proves to be a welcome respite from the growing noise of early summer movies.” —Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
