Cinemagoers and poetry fans flocked to our exclusive preview of A Quiet Passion (12A) on Saturday 25 March.
The film, due to be released in the UK on 7 April, focuses on a poet with an exceptional ability to distil ‘amazing sense’ from ‘ordinary meanings’. It features a searing central performance from Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon. The Guardian describes the film as ‘a masterpiece of mood’, while Richard Brody of The New Yorker calls it a ‘masterwork.’
Awarding it four out of five stars, The Guardian says Terence Davies’ biopic ‘finds beauty in the little things’.
‘The Sunset Song director’s film about the reclusive American poet overcomes the challenge of her closed, interior life, with the help of a great performance by Cynthia Nixon,’ critic Andrew Pulver says.
Tickets are £6 and are available in advance from our Box Office, Bridport Tourist Information Centre or online.
