A Quiet Passion

Terence Davies
United Kingdom, Belgium 2016
124 min

Who else but Terence Davies could condense Emily Dickinson’s life into a question of religious rebellion? With A QUIET PASSION, the Liverpool-born auteur interprets the 19th century poet as a tailor-made conduit for his chief concerns and interests: family, patriarchy, death and Catholicism. Given its themes and the tragic circumstances of Dickinson’s life, A QUIET 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)
