“Madeleine Olnek’s sublime re-examination of Dickinson’s life in Wild Nights with Emily . . . has the distinction of being one of Molly Shannon’s strongest and funniest performances to date as the titular poet. The film, based on more recent biographies, paints Emily as a joyous, witty intellectual stifled by the patriarchy of the 19th century.” Josh Kupecki, The Austin Chronicle. This Victorian dramedy re-imagines the personal life of 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson.

The aim of the Slow Art movement is to break with the often frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Slow Art at the Modern invests in this pause with a 30-minute spotlight tour focusing on one work of art. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern begins at 5:30 pm.
