Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) is superb as reclusive 19thcentury American poet Emily Dickinson in this acclaimed biographical drama by Terence Davies (House of Mirth). We see her steely wit, intelligence, vulnerability, and deep attachment to her family, and her struggles with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time. And we hear her poetry, written in the wee hours of the morning. With Jennifer Ehle and Keith Carradine. "An absolute drop-dead masterwork"—New Yorker. 2 hrs, 1 DVD or Blu-ray disc, booklet.
