Synopsis: Molly Shannon plays Emily Dickinson in the dramatic comedy "Wild Nights With Emily." The poet’s persona, popularized since her death, became that of a reclusive spinster – a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. This film explores her vivacious, irreverent side that was covered up — notably Emily’s lifelong romance with another woman (Susan Ziegler). After Emily died, a rivalry emerged when her brother's mistress (Amy Seimetz) and editor T.W. Higginson (Brett Gelman) published Emily's poems. Irreverent and surreal, Wild Nights was selected as one of "The 50 Most Anticipated American Independent Films of 2018"(Filmmaker Magazine); you will never look at Dickinson the same way again.
