A Quiet Passion

Movie Night at West End: A Quiet Passion

Wednesday, April 8, 2020, 6:00 pm

Visit West End library for a screening of A Quiet Passion. Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies exquisitely evokes Dickinson's deep attachment to her close knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.
