About the film

Director: Tom Harper
Actors: Jessie Buckley, Julie Walters
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, BEAST) 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.
