The Lithgow Valley Film Society is screening a recent release this week titled ‘A Quiet Passion’ (2017, PG).
Emily Dickenson was an eminent and prolific American poet. Outwardly she appeared to be prim and self-effacing but as the film shows, she was a fiery and passionate person who questioned every aspect of the society in which she lived.
The film stars Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle and Keith Carradine.
The film is set in the 1800’s and her work only came into prominence after her death in 1886.
Sceenings will be on Friday, September 14 at 10.30am and Sunday, September 16 at 2pm.
