Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as American poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), personifying the wit, intellect and pathos of the woman whose genius came to be recognized only after her death. She wrote 1,800 poems, but fewer than a dozen were published during her lifetime. Acclaimed British filmmaker Terence Davies brings both humor and intensity to his portrait of Emily and her inner turmoil. Co-starring Jennifer Ehle as her sister Lavinia and Keith Carradine as their father, the film evokes Dickinson’s deep attachment to her close-knit family, along with the sometimes-stifling manners, mores and spiritual convictions of the time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry. Rated PG-13. With Jodhi May, Emma Bell, Catherine Bailey. Writer/Director: Terence Davies. (UK 2016) 126 min.
