“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)
