Director Bio

Madeleine Olnek is a New York City-based playwright and filmmaker. She was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship for her third feature film, Wild Nights With Emily, which premiered at SXSW 2018. Her debut feature, Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same, premiered at Sundance 2011 and screened at MoMA and The Viennale. Her award-winning comedy shorts, Countertransference and Hold Up, were official selections of Sundance.

Body

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.
