Likely to love it or hate it
- A Quiet Passion review by IB
We watched this with a group of friends on holiday recently. It split the audience down the middle. If you begin by being completely unaware of who Emily Dickinson is, you are likely to go and find a book to read but others, myself included enjoyed it. A quiet biopic depicting the inner turmoil is of Emily Dickinson and some of her relationships. Marvellous Terence Davies interior scenes and beautifully lit.

- A Quiet Passion review by LC
There's not a lot to like about this film. The characters are generally unlikeable, and get more so as the film goes on. The dialogue is absurd, with witty repartee being mandatory to anything anyone says. There's a lot of misery, illness and death. the poetry is OK, but you'd probably be better off buying a book of poetry than sitting through this film.

An overlooked Oscar-worthy performance
- A Quiet Passion review by TR
Why on earth was Cynthia Nixon not even nominated for an Oscar? Her performance is brilliantly understated, as is the whole film.
