Production

On 10 September 2012, it was announced that Cynthia Nixon was set to play Emily Dickinson in a biopic directed by Terence Davies. In May 2015, after a long time in development hell, A Quiet Passion finally began production in Belgium. The film was shot at AED Studios in a replica of Dickinson's house. Additional scenes were also filmed in Amherst and Pelham, Massachusetts. Jennifer Ehle was cast in a key supporting role opposite Nixon.

Critical response

The initial critical response was positive: it was highly praised by the British nationals The Guardian and The Independent, which described the film as a 'Masterpiece of Mood'. Richard Brody of The New Yorker called it a "masterwork" and stated that the film would "take its place as one of [Davies'] finest creations". Had the film been given a limited release in the United States before 2017, Brody would have placed it first in his list of best films of 2016. The film holds a 77/100 on Metacritic.

The response from audience members has been highly polarized. Although the film currently scores a Rotten Tomatoes "fresh" rating of 93% from critics, the site's audience rating for the film is much lower—just 51%—with many audience members rating it one or one half stars.
