Special Pre-release Screening! - Filmmaker TERENCE DAVIES in person!
Highlighted by a stunning performance by Cynthia Nixon, master filmmaker Terence Davies crafts a powerful portrait of legendary poet Emily Dickinson from her early days as a young schoolgirl to her later years as a reclusive, unrecognized artist
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. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea, Sunset Song) 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. (Belgium/UK, 2017, 126 min., English, PG-13, DCP | Dir. Terence Davies)
