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.

"Given its themes and the tragic circumstances of Dickinson's life, "Passion" is a refreshingly humorous work. Its firecracker dialogue is invigorating; the assured, measured compositions are equally compelling. And in its sensitivity to intersecting conflicts related to womanhood and class, it is quietly masterful."
Michael Pattison - INDIEWIRE

"The great theme of Dickinson’s life, Davies argues, is finding solace — not in religion, but in art, and A QUIET PASSION itself can boast such moments of quiet catharsis. Read full review "
Rory O'Connor - THE FILM STAGE

"It is grounded, and made most exemplary, by Cynthia Nixon’s performance. Every actor in this movie is wonderful. But Nixon’s precision in portraying every particular mood of Emily — for each individual scene calls for absolute specificity — is simply spectacular."
Glenn Kenny - ROGEREBERT.COM
