A Quiet Passion Regissert av Terence Davies
The light in A Quiet Passion is as clean as snow, sifting through lace curtains; flickering fires give rooms the dark, warm varnish of oil paintings. But the film’s language is even more luminous and richly colored than its images. Terence Davies’s screenplay about the life of Emily Dickinson (the birdlike, astonishing Cynthia Nixon) is dense and dazzling, rigorous and subtle. The ritualistic stateliness of his camerawork is balanced by the bracing speed of his dialogue.

Davies’s film owes much to Nixon’s performance, and to Dickinson’s poetry, read quite beautifully by Nixon in recurring voiceover. For the glorious filmmaking, though, he can surely take credit. There are breathtaking shots and sequences throughout—working, as the movie wears on, in an increasingly confined setting, he uses cast shadows and intrusions of sunlight through windows to define the home that becomes Emily’s refuge and prison.

The film fits snugly among Davies’s (indeed, quiet) masterpieces for the way it wrings the sublime from the strained confines of everyday life, refusing the luxury of easy liberation on either side of the screen. By the time Dickinson asks her sister, Vinni (Jennifer Ehle), “Why has the world become so ugly?,” this tender and heartbreaking film has taught us better than to expect an answer.
