Book tickets


From acclaimed filmmaker Terence Davies, A Quiet Passion is a powerful study of 19th century poet Emily Dickinson, featuring a compassionate central performance from Cynthia Nixon.   

Spanning a rebellious schoolgirl youth to her later years as a reclusive writer, penning deeply personal verses that were rarely published, Davies’ elegant biopic vividly explores the hopes, dreams and desires of a woman whose brilliance was only posthumously recognised.  

While virtually unknown in her lifetime, Dickinson is considered to have written some of the most important poems in American literature, leaving behind a legacy of stunning, astute work that still resonates deeply today, and which Davies sensitively commemorates.
