Toronto: Cynthia Nixon’s ‘Quiet Passion’ Scores Sales

Double Dutch Intl. has closed three key deals for Cynthia Nixon’s Emily Dickinson biopic “A Quiet Passion” prior to its North American premiere at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

The film has been sold to Paname Distribution for France, Mimosa Films for Japan and Soda Pictures for the United Kingdom, resulting in most of the world now sold. The U.K. rights were previously sold to Metrodome, which subsequently filed for bankruptcy.

A Quiet Passion,” directed by Terence Davies, will screen Monday in the Masters section at Toronto. The story follows Dickinson from her early days as a young schoolgirl to her later years as a reclusive, unrecognized artist who left the world a huge body of emotional and powerful literary work, discovered only after she was gone.

The film premiered in the 2016 Berlinale Gala section and co-stars Jennifer Ehle.

“A Quiet Passion” is produced by Sol Papadopoulos and Roy Boulter of Hurricane Films with Belgium-based Potemkino co-producing. The executive producers include Andrea Gibson of Gibson & MacLeod, as well as Jason Moring of Double Dutch Intl.
