Director Madeleine Olnek’s (The Foxy Merkins, MQFF 2015) wonderfully droll and very contemporary period comedy Wild Nights with Emily finally gives poet Emily Dickinson the queer love story she deserves.
The ever wonderful Molly Shannon stars as Dickinson who if history had its way would be considered one of the most famous spinster poets, too timid to even publish her own work. This highly entertaining and sharply feminist film address this misconception and presents us with an Emily, brimming with passion, agency and love for her brother’s wife Susan, the inspiration for her most romantic poems.
