“I'm thrilled to say that it's an absolute drop-dead masterwork.” Richard Brody, The New Yorker.
Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson and impeccably personifies the wit, intellectual independence, and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (The House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) evokes Dickinson's deep attachment to her close knit family along with the manners, mores, and spiritual convictions of her time.
