“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.
