UK/Belgium, 2016. Director: Terence Davies, 124 minutes, PG, English

Cynthia Nixon stars as the legendary poet Emily Dickinson in this luminous biopic from director Terence Davies (The Deep Blue SeaSunset Song). Now recognized as a genius who committed to paper some of the most important verse in American literature, the 19th-century poet was virtually unknown in her lifetime, with fewer than a dozen of her nearly 1,800 poems published. A recluse who eventually boarded herself up in her bedroom, Dickinson explored her inner self in great detail. As source material, her story is as poetic as her work itself.

You will see no more beautiful a film this year – beautiful in its sumptuous photography, but also in the respect and love that it brings to its subject. The internal lives of poets are hard to visualize, yet Davies, a magician when it comes to understanding the inner workings of the most sensitive of minds, has created an extraordinarily moving account of Emily Dickinson’s particular genius.

Cast: Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Keith Carradine, Emma Bell, Duncan Duff, Rose Williams
