The story of 19th century American poet Emily Dickinson is brought to vivid life, in a remarkably sensitive biopic, exploring her early days as a schoolgirl through to her later years as a recluse. Now recognised as a genius that penned some of the most important verses in American literature, she was virtually unknown in her lifetime.
Cynthia Nixon commands a superb performance in the title role, while Davies’ elegant direction allows the audience to connect with the hopes, dreams and disappointments of one of the greatest poets of all time.
