Emily Dickinson (Emma Bell, Cynthia Nixon) grows up and lives rather remotely but in close contact with her sister Vinnie (Rose Williams, Jennifer Ehle) and her brother Austin (Benjamin Wainwright, Duncan Duff). She devotes her life to writing poetry, exploring her inner life instead of the world, always hoping for recognition of her art.
A Quiet passion is a beautifully filmed and well-acted movie that moves at a slow pace. I am sure it won’t be everybody’s cup of tea and I do feel conflicted about it myself, but it is worth to give it a try.
