Wild Nights with Emily

“Hilarious… an undeniably compelling romance.” —Indiewire

“As entertaining and thought-provoking as Dickinson’s poetry” —The Austin Chronicle

Fresh off its SXSW premiere, the dramatic comedy “Wild Nights with Emily” stars Molly Shannon as the poet Emily Dickinson. The film was inspired by an article in the NY Times that documented how infrared technologies restored erasures that hid romantic content in Dickinson’s letters. The poet’s persona, popularized since her death, was that of a reclusive spinster – a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. This film explores her passionate, vivacious 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. Irreverent and surreal, Wild Nights was one of "The 50 Most Anticipated American Independent Films of 2018"(Filmmaker Magazine); you will never look at Dickinson the same way again.
