WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY

APRIL 26 – MAY 2
WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY

The poet Emily Dickinson’s persona, popularized since her death, has been that of a reclusive spinster – a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. In this humorous drama, Molly Shannon captures the vivacious, irreverent side of Emily Dickinson that was covered up for years – most notably Emily’s lifelong romantic relationship with another woman (Susan Ziegler). After Emily’s death, a rivalry emerges when her brother’s mistress (Amy Seimetz) along with editor T.W. Higginson (Brett Gelman) published a book of Emily’s poems. Unique and surreal, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY sheds new light on the life one of our most celebrated poets.
Dir: Madeleine Olnek / 2019 / US / 84 min

“If someone found a way to use alien tech to scan my brain and create exactly the movie I’ve been waiting to see my entire life, this would be it.” – Heather Hogan, Autostraddle

“Molly Shannon excels as groundbreaking American poet and proto-feminist icon Emily Dickinson in this lusty biopic.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald

“This is an irreverent film, but its lightness is meaningful. With each silly flourish, Olnek offers joy and companionship to a figure whose history was more conveniently presented to generations of readers as solitary.” – Teo Bugbee, New York Times
