Revealing the personal circumstances of 19th century American Emily Dickinson, A Quiet Passion draws out the frustrations with societal convention and organised religion that Dickinson experienced, which she poured into her writing. From her early schooldays in a female seminary, where she caused controversy by asserting individual beliefs, to her adult life at home with the family, the film observes how despite her restricted lifestyle her imagination was able to soar. Judged by her peers as a social failure because of her unmarried status, and never achieving credit for the power of her writing in her lifetime, the film reveals the small moments of beauty in her life that allowed her to create poetry that resonates to the present day.
