Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Tormented by gender inequality and feelings of insecurity, Emily struggles to find her place in life, finally withdrawing from social life after a crisis of faith. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies exquisitely evokes Dickinson’s deep attachment to her close knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.
Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Keith Carradine, Catherine Bailey
