Wild Rose

Fresh out of prison, a Scottish woman juggles her job and two children while pursuing her dream of becoming a country music star. She soon gets her chance when she travels to Nashville, Tenn., on a life-changing journey to discover her true voice. Featuring a breakthrough performance from star Jessie Buckley, the film also stars Julie Waters, Sophie Okonedo, and Jamie Sives.

A happy-sad drama of starstruck fever that lifts you up and sweeps you along, touching you down in a puddle of well-earned tears.” (Variety)

“No chance of shrinkage for Rose, a preternaturally talented country singer marooned in Glasgow poverty, nor for Jessie Buckley, who portrays her in a career-making turn of the juiciest kind.” (The Georgia Straight)

“There’s no shortage of star-is-born stories, but Wild Rose proves they can still be thoroughly entertaining — and marks its own transcendent moment for lead Jessie Buckley.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“‘Wild Rose’ is singing a different tune. Just don’t be surprised when it winds up getting stuck in your head.” (Detroit News)
