A Quiet Passion DVD

| DVD

The story of 19th century American poet Emily Dickinson is brought to vivid life, in a remarkably sensitive biopic by director Terence Davies, exploring her early days as a young schoolgirl through to her later years as a recluse. Now recognised as a genius that penned some of the most important verses in American literature, the poet was virtually unknown in her lifetime, leaving behind a legacy of stunning, astute work that still resonates deeply today. Featuring a curated selection of her poems in voiceover, A Quiet Passion details every facet of Dickinson's character: her wit, her humour and the intimate, close-knit relationship she had with her family. Cynthia Nixon commands a superb performance in the title role, while Davies' elegant direction allows the audience to connect with the hopes, dreams and disappointments of one of the greatest poets of all time.

Terence Davies writes and directs this biographical drama about the life of American poet Emily Dickinson. Raised in a well-known family, Emily (Cynthia Nixon) refuses to conform and grows to be a reclusive and isolated woman considered eccentric by most. She defies the expectations of her society and her family, taking no interest in marriage and showing little reverence for God; the only solace she seeks is that that she finds in her poetry. The young woman finds little comfort within her family, facing constant disapproval from her overbearing father, with her sister Vinnie (Jennifer Ehle) providing her only escape from the strict, Puritan confines of her home. As she grows older, however, even her closest relationship begins to fade and illness makes Emily study closely that which inspires much of her poetry: mortality.
