Long considered a reclusive spinster in the annals of literary history, Madeleine Olnek’s film provides a refreshing take on the life of author and poet Emily Dickinson.
With petticoats flying and secret garden trysts, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY depicts the life of a warm and humorous woman forced to hide her identity and lifelong love affairs, while herwork was consistently rejected by the conservative, male literary establishment. Dickinson’s work is present throughout the film, but not heavy handed. Olnek does well to frame the tender relationship between Emily and Susan as the two navigate the social, professional, and gender constraints of the 19th century, which, it seems, are not all that different from the present day.
