While seeking publication of her poems, Emily Dickinson finds herself facing male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a cover for her own role in a love triangle.

MUBI's take

If you’ve seen Terence Davies’s A Quiet Passion, or think you know a thing or two about Emily Dickinson, this irreverent comedy may well make you think again. Sharp, nimble, and with a wonderful lead in Molly Shannon, Wild Nights with Emily raucously disinherits the dusty traditions of the biopic.
