Wild Nights with Emily | 2018 Ottawa LGBT Film Festival


Wild Nights with Emily | 2018 Ottawa LGBT Film Festival

Madeleine Olenek
14A+ | United States | English | 2018 | 84min | Feature Narrative

So you think you know Emily Dickinson? Well, Wild Nights with Emily is here to tell you that you don't. Not even a little bit.

History has painted Emily Dickinson as a sad, reclusive spinster, too sensitive for the world. But Madeleine Olenek (Co-Dependant Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same, The Foxy Merkins), with her signature brand of comedy, sets fire to that old canvas and shows us the real Emily, played to perfection by Molly Shannon. Detailing the author's struggle to have her poetry published and her lifelong romantic relationship with her brother's wife, Susan (Susan Ziegler,) this is absurd comedy with a real agenda.

Playing out like an extended episode of Drunk History, Wild Nights with Emily unveils a vivacious and talented woman who is full of life but living in a time that doesn't allow her to be seen for all that she is.
