  1. Trailer

In the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong romantic relationship with another woman, her friend and sister-in-law Susan...yes this is the iconic American poet, popularly thought to have been a recluse. Beloved comic Molly Shannon leads in this humorous yet bold reappraisal of Dickinson, informed by her private letters. While seeking publication of some of the 1,775 poems written during her lifetime, Emily (Shannon) finds herself facing a troupe of male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own role in buttoned-up Amherst's most bizarre love triangle.

"WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY feels at once revelatory and a total delight, a surprise for both for literature geeks and those who didn't do their required reading in school."
Kimber Myers - THE PLAYLIST

"Olnek's film is photographed with the bright key lighting traditionally associated with comedies, and at times feels like a series of workshopped sketches. This is not a bad thing."
Sherilyn Connelly - SF WEEKLY

"Beneath the japery and rough-edged filmmaking is an abiding love for the work - its passion and resilience - and respect for the women whose hidden lifelong language that work may have been."
Ty Burr - BOSTON GLOBE
