Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson, personifying the wit, pathos and spiritual independence of the great American poet whose genius would not be recognized until after her death. Revered British director Terence Davies (HOUSE OF MIRTH) exquisitely evokes Dickinson’s close-knit Amherst family, including her nurturing sister Vinnie (Jennifer Ehle) and proud patriarch father (Keith Carradine), along with the manners, mores and religious convictions of the time with which she struggled before finding transcendence in her poetry.
