Davies’s focus moves from the landscapes of Scotland in Sunset Song to the interiors of Massachusetts in the intimate biography of the reclusive poet Emily Dickinson, brilliantly played by Nixon.
Dickinson tries to battle against the social norms of her day, but slowly becomes confined to her family home in Amherst, all the time creating poetry that is skillfully highlighted within Davies’s script.
Beautifully photographed and with fine performances by a mixture of American and British actors, A Quiet Passion brings out the wit and melancholy of this great writer.
