A Quiet Passion

It must be me.

This is the second of Davies’ films that I have been looking forward to as a result of amazing reviews by people whose opinions I respect, and that I have failed to like, let alone love.

That’s not to say I didn’t appreciate some of the beautifully filmed shots, and a truly excellent performance from Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson; but there were some very irritating performances or characters (I couldn’t work out which it was) and an over-abundance of Oscar Wilde-infused sharp exchanges which left me bewildered and longing for a swift end.

I just don’t think Terence Davies and I are meant to be.
