SQIFF - Wild Nights with Emily (FILM - CAPTIONED)


Writer/director Madeleine Olnek (The Foxy MerkinsCodependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same) challenges the idea of 19th Century poet Emily Dickinson as a prudish recluse in this surreal comedy. Featuring Molly Shannon as the supposedly reserved literary icon engaging in lesbian romping and sticking it to the patriarchy of the male-dominated literary establishment. A unique take on the period drama, Wild Nights with Emily also features voiceovers and onscreen text showcasing Dickinson’s poetry and passion.
