Cynthia Nixon gives a career-best, tour-de-force performance as the legendary 19th Century poet Emily Dickinson in the luminous and intensely moving new film from award-winning filmmaker Terence Davies (Distant Voices Still Lives, The House of Mirth), named by The Guardian as ‘Britain’s greatest living director’.

"When one artist makes a film about another artist, you can be reasonably sure the first sees something of a mirror in the second. That's true here in Terence Davies' beautiful, formally demanding and quite searing portrait of the poet Emily Dickinson." Paul Byrnes The Age
"It's a singular life, marred by the fact that Dickinson didn't live to enjoy the admiration her poems now attract. And I can't think of another director with the sensibility to put it on screen." Sandra Hall The Age
