Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley), a rebellious country singer who dreams of trading the working-class streets of Glasgow for the Grand Ole Opry of Nashville, juggles her menial job, two children, and committed mother (Julie Walters), as she pursues her bold ambition of a one-way ticket to musical stardom. With the support of her boss (Sophie Okonedo), Rose-Lynn embarks on a life-changing journey that challenges her sense of self and helps her discover her true voice.
Insider tip: “This classically trained Irish singer and actress was a runner-up on a BBC singing competition and won roles in film (Beast) and TV (War and Peace, HBO’s Chernobyl). She’s a skyrocketing talent — and the full range of her gifts are on display here” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Yolanda Machado, The Wrap, adds: “Ultimately, of course, it’s Buckley who makes Rose-Lynn soar off the screen. It’s a dazzling, raw, intoxicating performance, and when she sings, it’s simply electric.” Alan Ng, Film Threat: “Wild Rose is one of those films that you have to hunt for, and it’s well worth the effort.” Kim Hughes, Original Cin: “Wild Rose may not be what the summer season typically delivers to cinemas, but audiences miss it at their peril.” Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter: “Pure dead gallus (that’s Scots for ‘wonderful’).”
WILD ROSE has 2 wins and 1 addition nomination for excellence.
