Come along to cin­ema to see ‘A Quiet Pas­sion’

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

Emily in the in­tensely new film from award-win­ning film­maker Ter­ence Davies.

Born into priv­i­lege in 1830, Emily Dickinson spent most of her life on her par­ents’ es­tate in Amherst, Mas­sachusetts.

In her youth, the in­tro­verted Emily is de­picted as a fiercely in­tel­li­gent young woman who ex­changes forthright opin­ions on life and art – and, more particularly, on the place of women in a male-dom­i­nated so­ci­ety.

‘Dickinson may have seemed prim and self-ef­fac­ing, but as Davies and Nixon bril­liantly show, she was in fact a fiery, pas­sion­ate fig­ure who ques­tioned ev­ery as­pect of the pa­tri­ar­chal so­ci­ety in which she lived.’ Ge­of­frey Mac­nab, The In­de­pen­dent

At a cost of $15, you will not only see the movie but be treated to the usual de­li­cious af­ter­noon tea which the Euroa Red Cross unit are renowned.

This is the first event or­gan­ised by the new 2017/2018 com­mit­tee for the lo­cal unit which in­cludes Pam Case (pres­i­dent), Beryl Har­ris (vice-pres­i­dent), Bev Asquith (trea­surer) and An­nette Cock­ing ( sec­re­tary).

The next meet­ing for the Euroa unit will be on to­mor­row, Thurs­day, September 7 from 10am (meet­ing at 10.30am) with new mem­bers most wel­come.
