Come along to cinema to see ‘A Quiet Passion’
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.
