A Quiet Passion

About the Film

Premiering in a Special Gala Screening at Berlinale International Film Festival 2016, A QUIET PASSION is Terence Davies’ biographical drama detailing the life of Emily Dickinson; her loves, her struggles and her magnificent poetry.  Shot on set in Belgium and on location in Amherst, Massachusetts, A Quiet Passion paints a sympathetic but far from idealistic portrait of Emily’s life. Described as “an absolute drop-dead masterwork” by The New Yorker’s Richard Brody and “quietly masterful” by The Independent’s Geoffrey Macnab, the film combines a dramatic plot with moments of tasteful humour. 

Director: Terence Davies
