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. Featuring a finely curated selection of her work read in voiceover, this luminous biopic will appeal to existing Dickinson fans and create new ones at the same time.

Davies has created a wonderfully droll portrait of Emily Dickinson and her creative life - which is also a canny satire of New England society.
