Beach Rats (Eliza Hittman)

Burgeoning sexuality is the basis for nearly all coming-of-age films, but with her specific eye, Eliza Hittman makes it feel like we’re watching this genre unfold for the first time. With only two features to her name, she’s captured the experience with a sensuality and intimacy nearly unprecedented in American independent filmmaking. Following 2013’s It Felt Like Love, the writer-director follows it with

Different Flowers

“You don’t leave a man at the altar then grovel at his feet. Woman up,” Emma (Hope Lauren, “Supergirl”) urges older sister Millie (Emma Bell, “The Walking Dead”) in our exclusive clip of “Different Flowers.” Millie is a runaway bride — she fled her lavender-themed Kansas wedding and her fiancé, who was waiting for her at the altar. And now she’s left dealing with the aftermath of her decision.

When Millie considers whether she should give the would-be groom a call, Emma is quick to reject the idea and offer one of her own. She thinks that Millie needs to get rid of her engagement ring.

Different Flowers” marks Morgan Dameron’s feature directorial debut. She also penned the script, which sees the sisters setting off on an adventure together. You can catch the comedy in theaters September 29.

20th Century Women (Mike Mills)

That emotional profundity most directors try to build to across an entire film? Mike Mills achieves it in every scene of 20th Century Women. There’s such a debilitating warmness to both the vibrant aesthetic and construction of its dynamic characters as Mills quickly soothes one into his story that you’re all the more caught off-guard as the flurry of emotional wallops are presented.

A Quiet Passion – Review

Early in A Quiet Passion, we see the young Emily Dickinson being expelled from a women’s college for her defiant, free-thinking attitude. It is not how we usually see the poet portrayed, and one of the refreshing aspects of director Terence Davies’s insightful, surprising biography.

Those expecting a depressing, claustrophobic slog through the life of Emily Dickinson will be very surprised by A Quiet Passion. Davies presents a witty young Emily, who is irresistibly energetic and frankly laugh-out loud funny. Cynthia Nixon turns in a stellar performance as Dickinson, in this wonderful drama from the acclaimed British director of House Of Mirth and last year’s Sunset Song. If you only know the actress from Sex In The City, this role will be a revelation.

Movie Review: A Quiet Passion is the witty, morbid biopic Emily Dickinson deserves

One of the most remarkable moments in A Quiet Passion, Terence Davies’ witty and stirring Emily Dickinson biopic, is a simple transitional device. Emily, played as a teenager by Emma Bell, has sat down to pose for what will become one of the only surviving photos of the poet, taken in 1847. Davies slinks his camera forward, pushing in on her face, until—through some almost imperceptible trick of the light—Bell has transformed, before our very eyes, into Cynthia Nixon. This amazingly seamless special effect serves a practical function: A Quiet Passion has leapt from Dickinson’s youth to her adulthood, and from here Nixon will take over the role. But given the preoccupations of this great American artist, unsung in her own time but almost universally beloved today, the moment shudders with an additional significance. Emily knew, as well as any, that life is short. It can pass ...

'A Quiet Passion' Review: Cynthia Nixon Shines as Emily Dickinson

'A Quiet Passion' Review: Cynthia Nixon Shines as Emily Dickinson
The Furious 8 crowd is advised to run for the hills. Terence Davies is a poet of cinema, of images, sounds and rhythms that define a life. Davies films move at a pace demanded by the material, not fidgety audiences. His remarkable debut features – 1988's Distant Voices, Still Lives and 1992's The Long Day Closes – are drawn from his own growing up experiences as the youngest of 10 children in a working-class Catholic family in Liverpool. To deal with an abusive father, he escaped into music and movies.

A Quiet Passion review – profound, painful Emily Dickinson biopic

Terence Davies’s film follows the American poet’s descent from wisecracking repartee to isolated creative rigour

In one of A Quiet Passion’s early scenes, the poet Emily Dickinson quips that “an argument about gender is an argument about war”. Terence Davies’s biopic of the 19th-century American writer sets itself up as a film About Gender, declaring its explicit interest in the war waged on women who write about their own misery.

We open with young Emily (Emma Bell) departing her all-girls seminary; the remainder of the film takes place almost entirely within the confines of the Dickinsons’ home in Amherst, Massachusetts. No matter the setting, both teenage Emily and the writer she eventually becomes (Cynthia Nixon, on blistering form) reject the religious framework forced on them. Each is invested in the matters of her soul; just not in the matter of its saving.

A Quiet Passion review – Cynthia Nixon gives Emily Dickinson the soul of a poet

Terence Davies’s elegant film benefits from a terrific performance by Nixon, who makes the reclusive 19th-century poet seem radiant with loneliness

In this film, Cynthia Nixon has the face of someone with a secret. She plays the poet Emily Dickinson, and her face is fever-bright with irony and wit, then loneliness and fear. You can see how emotions are somehow stored in that face provisionally, being refined and saved for later – for the poetry she writes during the night. It is a face that changes as she grows older and moves along the spectrum of genius, publishing little or nothing, angry about the non-consolation of “posterity”. Terence Davies’s film and Nixon’s tremendous performance reminded me of Wh Auden saying that Matthew Arnold “thrust his gift in prison till it died”. It isn’t Dickinson’s gift for poetry that gets thrust in prison but her gift for love,

Cynthia Nixon Feels ‘A Quiet Passion’ in New Trailer for Terence Davies’ Biopic

One of the most striking, accomplished, and affecting films of last year was Terence DaviesSunset Song — and, thankfully, one won’t have to wait long to see his follow-up. After premiering at last year’s Berlin International Film Festival and hitting Tiff, A Quiet Passion is coming to the U.S. this spring, hence a new trailer. The film chronicles the life and work of Emily Dickinson, here played by Cynthia Nixon. Also starring Jennifer Ehle, Keith Carradine, and Emma Bell, we now have a beautiful new U.K. trailer.

In our review, we said, “Nixon excels in this choice role, bringing bags of warmth and spirit to Dickinson while retaining the ability to wield a sharp edge whenever called upon. The actress’ famously open, aghast expressions are used to great effect in Passion‘s more comedic moments, of which there are surprisingly many. As usual, Davies works from his own screenplay,

'Different Flowers': Film Review | Santa Barbara 2017
Indiana native Shelley Long returns to feature films and her regional roots in Different Flowers, playing the grandmother of a runaway bride who's trying to reconcile her romantic inclinations with her need for independence. With its relaxed Midwestern charm and female-empowerment storyline, Dameron’s wedding-themed family dramedy should have no trouble finding a suitable suitor prepared for a committed partnership.

Approaching 30 and facing crucial decisions about career, marriage and family, Millie (Emma Bell) makes a last-second decision to bail on her lavender-themed Kansas City wedding, leaving her groom Charlie (Sterling Knight) awkwardly standing at the altar. Abetted by her enabling...

Terence Davies, the esteemed director of The House Of Mirth; Distant Voices, Still Lives; The Deep Blue Sea; The Long Day Closes, and Sunset Song spoke with me on the costume designs by Catherine Marchand for his latest film A Quiet Passion, starring Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson with Jennifer Ehle as her sister Vinnie. Catherine Bailey, Keith Carradine, Duncan Duff, Joanna Bacon, Benjamin Wainwright, Sara Vertongen, Emma Bell, Jodhi May, and Noémie Schellens head a dandy supporting cast.
