For June, the Cane Fire Film Series screens the British period piece, “A Quiet Passion,” on Monday, June 12 beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Downtown Lafayette.
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.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. For more information, visit AcadianaCenterfortheArts.org.
