September 29 @ 6:15 pm - 7:50 pm

DIRECTED BY MADELEINE OLNECK | USA | 84 MIN

Molly Shannon plays Emily Dickinson in the humorous drama ‘Wild Nights with Emily.” The poet’s persona, popularized since her death, became that of a reclusive spinster – a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. This film explores her vivacious, irreverent side that was covered up for years — most notably Emily’s lifelong romantic relationship with another woman (Susan Ziegler). After Emily died, a rivalry emerged 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, this seriously Independent film was the Winner of the US-In-Progress award in Paris.
