With sly wit, the always wonderful Molly Shannon embodies poet Emily Dickinson, portraying her as a driven writer, a target of obsessive envy, an ardent lover and a woman who suffered no fools. Unreliable narrator Mabel Todd (Amy Seimetz, Stranger Things, Pit Stop) misrepresents the famed writer as an unrequited spinster and shut-in. Meanwhile, her true vibrant nature, known best by Emily's lifelong lover and sister-in-law Susan (Olnek regular Susan Ziegler), shines through. This tart and hilarious account of creative passion and longing, from acclaimed Frameline alum Madeleine Olnek (The Foxy Merkins, Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same), tells only the truth but tells it with an ingeniously subversive slant. Expected guests for this feature screening at the Castro in San Francisco include director Madeleine Olnek and actors Amy Seimetz, Jackie Monahan and Susan Ziegler.
