Woolfing at the Movies: Wild Nights With Emily

April 14 @ 4:50 pm - 7:00 pm

We’re getting a big group of Woolfers together to go see Wild Nights with Emily in NYC! The film was directed by Woolfer Madeline Olnek and she’ll be giving a talkback after the screening. 


ABOUT THE MOVIE:


The poet Emily Dickinson’s persona, popularized since her death, has been that of a reclusive spinster – a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. In this humorous drama, Molly Shannon captures the vivacious, irreverent side of Emily Dickinson that was covered up for years – most notably Emily’s lifelong romantic relationship with another woman (Susan Ziegler). After Emily’s death, a rivalry emerges when her brother’s mistress (Amy Seimetz) along with editor T.W. Higginson (Brett Gelman) published a book of Emily’s poems. Unique and surreal, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY sheds new light on the life one of our most celebrated poets.
