A Quiet Passion is Terence Davies’ biographical drama detailing the life of Emily Dickinson her loves, her struggles and her magnificent poetry. Shot in Belgium and Massachusetts, A Quiet Passion paints a sympathetic but far from idealistic portrait of one of America’s greatest poets. Jennifer Ehle, Keith Carradine, Duncan Duff, and Catherine Bailey co-star.

“I’m thrilled to say that it’s an absolute drop-dead masterwork.”

— Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“Davies, the most interiorized of English filmmakers, shows his devotion through his fidelity to text, trying portray as much as he can of the poet’s sad but notoriously uneventful life.”

— Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club
