Who was Emily Dickinson? What kind of a person lurked behind the poet who spent most of her life on her parents' estate in Amherst, Massachusetts? The film that portrays an unconventional woman about whose life very little is known. Born in 1803, Dickinson is considered to be a gifted child, but an emotional trauma forces her to give up her studies. The introverted young woman withdraws from society and writes poetry. In her life poetry takes up more and more space. Emily Dickinson communicates with the outside world via letters. Davies’ biopic also describes a talented woman’s lonely and desperate struggle for recognition in a world dominated by men.

The film will be screened in the original language, with Hungarian subtitles.
