Madeleine Olnek’s portrait of Emily Dickinson (Molly Shannon) casts light on the poet’s intense romance with women and words, and in doing so subverts the notions of biography and history entire. The result is a sexy, breathless, absurdist, and very cinematic literary romp. Interpretation alters our perception, turning seemingly dusty poetry into unspeakable sexual innuendo. “I taste a liquor never brewed—”, Dickinson whispers to her lover Susan—affirming that her lines are truly about that.
