Fresh from its SXSW premiere, the Amherst Poetry Festival is pleased to present the dramatic comedy Wild Nights With Emily about the life of Emily Dickinson. IndieWire called Molly Shannon's portrayal of Dickinson "brilliant," saying the film "could forever change the narrative of the world's most famous woman poet." Bring your picnic blankets, camp chairs and snacks for this lawn screening that runs 84 minutes. Join Jane Wald, executive director of the Dickinson Museum, in a Q&A after with filmmaker Madeleine Olnek, at this exciting outdoor screening on the lawn at Dickinson’s home!
