Wild Nights with Emily

Sunday, Apr 21, 2019 at 7:00 PM - English

This is the story of the secret life of Emily Dickinson (played flawlessly by Molly Shannon). The poet’s persona, popularized since her death, is that of a reclusive spinster, a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. This film explores the vivacious, irreverent side of her that was covered up for many years and recently revealed, most notably Emily’s lifelong romance with another woman, Susan Dickinson, the wife of Emily’s brother. Thanks to the irreverent and surreal Wild Nights With Emily, you will never look at Dickinson or her poetry the same way again.
