Friday Night In screens “A Quiet Passion”

April 30, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Friday Night In watches “A Quiet Passion” to celebrate poetry month!

Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence, and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) exquisitely evokes Dickinson s deep attachment to her close-knit family along with the manners, mores, and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.

Participants will meet to discuss the film on Zoom before and after the movie ends. I will share my screen but for best viewing quality, it is best to watch on your own Kanopy accounts all at the same time.

Kanopy is a free movie streaming service available to DFPL and Butterfield Library Patrons.  Set up your Kanopy accounts via this link (Butterfield patrons can sign up here).

Please call the library at 845-424-3020 or email Karen@desmondfishlibrary.org if you need any help.
