After Susan brings the newspaper to show Emily her published poem, she (sarcastically) wishes Emily a Happy Valentine's Day as she exits. In the next shot, a tree with full foliage can be seen out the window. There are definitely no leaves on the trees in Amherst, Massachusetts in mid-February. See more »

Fantastic!
12 June 2019 | by kcarrell-95390See all my reviews

If you're looking for a serious historical drama featuring stories from the life of Emily Dickinson, this is not your movie.

Instead, this is an ideal movie for those who love Emily and want to both laugh at some silly/comical interactions and learn about a side of Emily not as commonly known.

It plays a little like an episode of Drunk History, so go in with that expectation. If you accept it as that, you will walk away with a real appreciation for Molly Shannon's talent and a new appreciation for Emily Dickinson.
