Jessie Buckley delivers an unforgettable, star-making performance as Rose-Lynn Harlan, a rebellious country singer who dreams of trading the working-class streets of Glasgow for the Grand Ole Opry of Nashville.
Fresh out of prison, Rose-Lynn 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, Rose-Lynn embarks on a life-changing journey that helps her discover her true voice. Complete with an electrifying soundtrack performed by Buckley, WILD ROSE is a joyous story steeped in music, courage, family, and achieving your dreams – no matter how distant they may appear.
“…the ridiculous talent of Jessie Buckley, whose unbridled lead performance builds on her work in “Beast” and “Chernobyl” to confirm the young Irish star as one of the most exciting people you could ever hope to see on a movie screen.” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire
