Acclaimed director Terence Davies presents a beautiful biopic about the ground-breaking American poet, Emily Dickinson (Nixon).

From her youth through to adulthood, the film demonstrates Dickinson’s wit, intelligence and deep family connection, but also how at odds she felt with society and religion, and how this translated into her poetry. As her life is touched by tragedy and her frustration grows at her lack of recognition, loneliness and reclusiveness begin to dominate Dickinson’s life.
