Emily Dickinson je večino življenja preživela na posestvu staršev v mestecu Amherst v Massachusettsu. Pisala je dnevno, vsako noč, a je bil le neznaten fragment te poezije objavljen v času njenega življenja. Bila je plaha, a polna iskrivega smisla za humor. Njeno življenje je prevevalo tiho dostojanstvo; njeno poezijo izjemna veličina. Vsa groza in lepota sveta sta tu skrčeni na samo esenco pomena in ekspresije. Bila je bržkone ena največjih pesnic. Tiha strast je pretanjena in pogosto humorna zgodovinska drama o življenju in delu ene največjih pesnic vseh časov Emily Dickinson, v režiji poeta sodobnega britanskega filma Terencea Daviesa. In je hkrati pretresljiv portret ženske, umetnice uporniškega, neodvisnega duha v primežu zadušljive patriarhalne in krščanske morale. Svetovna premiera na festivalu v Berlinu. Toronto. London.

»Z navdušenjem lahko rečem, da gre za absolutno, razkošno mojstrovino. Saj ne da bi bila to edina paradigma, s katero razpolagam, a primerjava s Scorsesejem je zopet na mestu: Tiha strast je Daviesov Volk z Wall Streeta.«
- Richard Brody, The New Yorker

ENGLISH
Who was Emily Dickinson? What kind of a person lurked behind the poet who spent most of her life on her parents' estate in Amherst, Massachusetts? This mansion provides the setting for a film that portrays an unconventional woman about whose life very little is known. Born in 1803, Dickinson is considered to be a gifted child, but an emotional trauma forces her to give up her studies. The introverted young woman withdraws from society and writes poetry. In spite of her cloistered existence she takes her readers on a journey into the wider world. Terence Davies imagines her biography and explores how Emily Dickinson’s exceptional poems could come into being. The camera glides delicately into a life in which poetry takes up more and more space. Emily Dickinson communicates with the outside world via letters. In her correspondence with her siblings and the clergyman Charles Wadsworth she exchanges philosophical and everyday observations. To her, Wadsworth’s move to San Francisco is a tragedy. Davies’ biopic also describes a talented woman’s lonely and desperate struggle for recognition in a world dominated by men.
