Main - Adults: Kanopy Movie Night: A Quiet Passion

Wednesday, November 29, 2023

A Quiet Passion, 2016
2hrs 5min

Come watch a staff pick from Kanopy! 

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. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) 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.

Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival.

"An absolute drop-dead masterwork."- Richard Brody, The New Yorker
