Wild Nights with Emily
Molly Shannon plays Emily Dickinson in the humorous drama 'Wild Nights with Emily." The poets 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 Emilys 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 and premiered to great acclaim at this years SXSW Film Festival.
In Attendance: Director Madeleine Olnek.
