In the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson was writing prolifically and in a passionate romantic relationship with her sister-in-law, yet is still popularly believed to be a recluse. Starring Molly Shannon and informed by Dickinson's private letters, Wild Nights with Emily is a humorous and bold take on this iconic American poet, who found herself facing male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously, and instead attracts the attention of an ambitious editor who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own bizarre love triangle. A timely critique of how women's history is rewritten, Wild Nights with Emily is a vibrant, irreverent, tender-and perhaps a closer-depiction of Emily Dickinson's real life than anything seen before.
