Wild Nights with Emily

The notion of acclaimed poet Emily Dickinson as a tortured recluse is well and truly punctured in writer/director Madeleine Olnek’s delightfully funny film, featuring a wonderful performance by Molly Shannon as the supposedly reserved literary icon. In Olnek’s period romp, Dickinson is a vibrant woman forced to hide her lesbian love affair and whose work is rejected by the male-dominated literary establishment. The film is sprinkled with voiceovers and graphics of text that showcase her poetry and passion. A wonderfully wry period film with a real difference.
