Spectrum Film Fest: Wild Nights with Emily

The poet Emily Dickinson’s persona, popularized since her death, has been that of a reclusive spinster – a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. In this humorous drama, Molly Shannon captures the vivacious, irreverent side of Emily Dickinson that was covered up for years – most notably Emily’s lifelong romantic relationship with another woman (Susan Ziegler). After Emily’s death, a rivalry emerges 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, Wild Nights with Emily sheds new light on the life one of our most celebrated poets.
