The Quad reopened with A Quiet Passion, Terence Davies’s masterful look at the life and struggles of Emily Dickinson—and two years later, we’re proud to present this very different take on the poet. Molly Shannon’s Emily is no spinster, but an ambitious rebel in the throes of a passionate longtime love affair with friend Susan Gilbert (Susan Ziegler). This hilarious and tender account reclaims one of our greatest artists as a lesbian icon and a feminist trailblazer.
