Rating: NR] Trailer: www.rehobothfilm.com/festival WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY A biographical comedy about the secret life of writer Emily Dickinson (Molly Shannon). The poet’s persona is that of a reclusive spinster—a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. This film explores the vivacious, irreverent side of Dickinson that was covered up for many years: most notably, Emily’s lifelong romance with Susan Dickinson, the wife of Emily’s brother. After Emily died, the mistress of Emily’s brother would publish Emily’s poems. A fierce rivalry between Emily’s beloved and her brother’s mistress in making known the work of this great poet is also the story of two sets of passionate, illicit lovers in a mysterious struggle for a place in history.
