Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. —Henry Fielding

A Quiet Passion

This didn't work for me. It felt too often stilted and too repetitive. There are some great performances, but there are also some terrible ones. It's an odd marriage and Davies is a strange filmmaker. The work is so queer and I always want to love it, but I just don't understand why he makes some of the choices he makes. A Quiet Passion does actually make me like Emily Dickinson a little bit more. I will admit that.
