|Cynthia Nixon gives a career-best, tour-de-force performance as the legendary 19th Century poet Emily Dickinson in the luminous and intensely moving new film from award-winning filmmaker Terence Davies (Distant Voices Still Lives, The House of Mirth), named by The Guardian as Britains greatest living director. Born into privilege in 1830, Emily Dickinson spent most of her life on her parents estate in Armherst, Massachusetts. In her youth, the introverted Emily is depicted as a fiercely intelligent young woman who exchanges forthright opinions on life and art and, more particularly, on the place of women in a patriarchal society. Emily becomes more and more reclusive as the years pass, gradually withdrawing from society. In her cloistered existence she is consumed by poetry, but the lack of recognition fewer than a dozen of her nearly 1800 poems were published in her lifetime and her frustrations regarding gender inequality and creative integrity make for an ever more vociferous dissention Gloriously realising Dickinsons interior world, Davies gives great weight to the role in which her family, and their various bourgeois guests, play in her life. Its Emilys encounters with her sister (Pride & Prejudices Jennifer Ehle), brother, mother and father (Keith Carradine) that provide the hinge around which the film is structured. Stunning in both its sumptuous production design and also in the respect and love that it brings to its subject, the seamless manner in which Dickinsons sharp-sighted verse is integrated into the narrative is one of A QUIET PASSIONs many joys. Davies portrait may just be the perfect match of filmmaker, actress and subject.|
