Jessie Buckley, Sophie Okonedo, and Julie Walters star in this inspiring comedy-drama about a would-be country singer who dreams of leaving her dreary, workaday Glasgow life for the bright lights of Nashville.

Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley) has dreamt of becoming a country music star for as long as anyone can remember. But Glasgow isn't exactly Nashville, and, as a convicted criminal and single mother of two young children, Rose-Lynn is more country song than country starlet.

Buckley delivers a vivacious and unforgettable performance as Rose-Lynn, her voice a star of its own. With a confident hand, director Tom Harper brings Nicole Taylor's beautiful, textured script, full of authentic characters and unexpected turns, to life in Glasgow, a city that, like his protagonist, might appear gritty on the surface, but is bursting with spirit and personality.

Anchored by a go-for-broke breakout performance from the immensely talented Buckley, WILD ROSE is a crowd-pleasing musical adventure about chasing your dreams and discovering yourself, while simultaneously and playfully subverting the audience’s expectations for exactly that type of narrative arc.

Wild Rose is so much fun that you only half notice its left-turn from the star-is-born setup to something altogether richer and more emotionally satisfying.
