Terence Davies‘ upcoming biopic “A Quiet Passion” has a new UK trailer, bringing viewers a taste of the drama that follows the story of famed American poet Emily Dickinson played by Cynthia Nixon of “Sex and the City” fame.
The drama takes us into the life of Dickinson, with Davies delivering his third straight woman-led drama, following 2011’s “The Deep Blue Sea” and 2015’s “Sunset Song.” Here’s the official synopsis:
The story of 19th century American poet Emily Dickinson is brought to vivid life, in a remarkably sensitive biopic by director Terence Davies, exploring her early days as a young schoolgirl, through to her later years as a recluse. Now recognised as a genius that penned some of the most important verses in American literature, the poet was virtually unknown in her lifetime, leaving behind a legacy of stunning, astute work that still resonates deeply today.
Featuring a curated selection of her poems in voiceover, A Quiet Passion details every facet of Dickinson’s character: her wit, her humour and the intimate, close-knit relationship she had with her family. Cynthia Nixon commands a superb performance in the title role, while Davies’ elegant direction allows the audience to connect with the hopes, dreams and disappointments of one of the greatest poets of all time.
“A Quiet Passion” will be released in UK cinemas April 7th and in the U.S. on April 14th.
