Atom User Reviews for Wild Nights with Emily
Beneath the japery and rough-edged filmmaking is an abiding love for the work — its passion and resilience — and respect for the women whose hidden lifelong language that work may have been.
This is a great example of Olnek's style. It's respectful, but it's also alive. It's serious, but it's also tongue-in-cheek. Olnek's approach gives Emily room to breathe. At last.
However well or poorly it matches the truth of Emily's life, the film's vision of her long relationship with Susan is warmly funny.
