Screen Seven: A Quiet Passion

Screen Seven: A Quiet Passion


Young Emily is agnostic and free-thinking, but bullied at a tyrannically puritan Christian school from which she is miraculously rescued by her warm and kindly family, to be welcomed into a protective and relatively liberal circle.

She grows to adulthood and at first, Emily’s life is odd, cloistered, but happy enough. Her father allows her the latitude to write which a husband would never permit; she has some poems published, though publishers mess with her punctuation.

Personal calamities ensue: her inspiringly witty and rebellious friend Vryling Buffam meekly submits to marriage and moves away – a rather Austenian betrayal and others whom Emily loves die or disappear from her life or let her down.

She succumbs to illness and disillusion, dressing in strange anti-mourning white and scorning visitors. Emily and her sister talk about George Eliot and the Brontës, but no one is tactless enough to mention Dickens’s Miss Havisham.

Dir: Terence Davies,  UK, 2017,  2hr 05min, 12A.
