I'm thrilled to say that it's an absolute drop-dead masterwork.

The New Yorker

Terence Davies' (Of Time And The City) latest is an exceptional biographical drama detailing the life of Emily Dickinson (superbly played by Cynthia Nixon) her loves, her struggles and her magnificent poetry.

Davies takes us from Emily’s youth as a fiercely intelligent young woman challenging the place of women in a patriarchal society, to her later years, where her lack of recognition as a poet, her growing loneliness and her frustrations regarding gender inequality and her ill health see her become a recluse.

Davies film feels like a classic painting that has been beautifully brought to life with deft cinematic flourishes and smatterings of Dickinson’s verse to create a compelling portrait of the poet.
