WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
American poet Emily Dickinson (Nixon) grows up in a suppressed household, from her days as a schoolgirl to later in life, when she is a reclusive and unrecognised artist…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Terence Davies writes and directs a long-in-the-making biopic of acclaimed poet Emily Dickinson, and hopefully it will make up for his severely unbalanced mess of a previous film, Sunset Song.
