News & Interviews for Dickinson: Season 1
Dickinson" seems ready to whisk viewers to a place they've never been before. But he promise is soon swept away, and "Dickinson" goes back to being just another humdrum teen dramedy suitable for The CW.
Dickinson shows promise in a number of areas -- among them striking visual language, an irresistible playfulness in the music supervision, and a sense of fun, if not humor, that pervades even scenes about mortality or misogyny.
Silly, horny, a little sad, and just a shade frightening...It gets a lot wrong, but it gets the most important thing right.
Within Dickinson is the still-nascent potential for something beautiful, waiting to burst forth like a morning glory, so long as its promise is cultivated with care.
The show deliberately leans in to flamboyant anachronisms and jarring contradictions.
Alena Smith launched the punk and spectacular cathartic of a baroque show that has something of the expansive cinema and deliciously camp of Baz Luhrmann, Dickinson. [Full Review in Spanish]
Dickinson challenges our straight-washing of history and allows for nuanced takes on love and attraction.
Dickinson, streaming now on Apple TV+, is a confused, disrespectful mess that manages to turn an American literary icon into a paint-by-numbers influencer whose "not like the other girls" energy renders her portrayal borderline unwatchable.
It is crazy, optimistic, entertaining, somewhat irreverent, funny at times. [Full review in Spanish]
There are moments, like this one, where Dickinson's quest to modernize the story feels a little jarring, revisionist a la Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette and sleek enough to be an iPhone commercial.
I found it difficult to get through much of it even though the talent is all right there. A great story about Emily Dickinson is waiting to be told and Hailee Steinfeld is well suited for the challenge. This, unfortunately, is not that story.
Audience Reviews for Dickinson: Season 1
4d agoIdk if ive ever rated a show on here before, but this one is just perfect. I cant stop rewatching it. Its so funny and quirky and heartfelt. The writing is incredible. I literally just checked out a book of emily dickinson poems from the library.
4d agoEntertaining, smart and modernized story of Emily Dickinson. Never thought I'd like a show about the poet but I am pleasantly surprised. The music is spot on and action can be a bit absurd but fits nicely with Emily's melodramatic writing style. Beautiful. It's an unknown gem!
Dec 15, 2020LOVE the show! Love how it's set in the old times! One of my favorite shows can't wait for season 2!!
Dec 14, 2020Entertaining and awesome.
Sep 13, 2020I was not prepared to fall in love with this show the way I have. Incredible set and costume design work wonderfully with the framing and directing, the writing is absolutely magnificent as are the performances, even the soundtrack is on point. Hailee Steinfeld perfectly captures the modern, slightly absurdist version of Emily Dickinson created by Alena Smith, and the supporting cast help bring this whole, colourful world to life.
Aug 14, 2020I love love love Hailee's acting even if the whole story and set-up is rather bizarre.
Jul 14, 2020Bastante inesperada, muy graciosa. Me ha encantado.
Jul 07, 2020I really like this one, its different, good acting, funny moments, but not ridiculous funny moments. A must see!!!
Jun 13, 2020Too self-obsessed with itself and modernity to be interesting or fun.
Jun 05, 2020OMG!! This is fabulous!! So well done, great soundtrack.... wow. Surprising ...clever comedy and It's great how they bring today's humour and language into this old timey period. They blend history and literature in present day attitudes. Love it!! Well done Apple!!
