Emily Dickinson, now recognized as a genius that penned some of the most important verses in American literature, was virtually unknown in her lifetime. From her days as a schoolgirl through to her later years as a recluse, the lack of respect for her work stokes ever more vociferous dissension.

Our take

Terence Davies’s stylish and refined biopic of the reclusive American poet captures the stirrings of a passion that is far from quiet. Featuring an extraordinary performance from Cynthia Nixon, the great British director depicts the life of Emily Dickinson with remarkable wit and grace.
