"Wild Rose is so much fun that you only half notice its left-turn from the star-is-born setup to something altogether richer and more emotionally satisfying." - Jamie Dunn, The Skinny

"A happy-sad drama of star struck fever that lifts you up and sweeps you along, touching you down in a puddle of well-earned tears." – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

"A beautiful story told with a huge amount of tenderness and love for its unconventional heroine. Jessie Buckley is one of the brightest stars in our sky right now." - Linda Marric, HeyUGuys

"Entirely delightful, fresh as a Scottish summer evening." – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley) is bursting with talent, charisma and cheek. Fresh out of jail and with two young kids, all she wants is to get out of Glasgow and make it to Nashville as a country singer. Her mum Marion (Julie Walters) has had a bellyful of Rose-Lynn’s nonsense and insists she quits dreaming. Forced to take responsibility, Rose-Lynn gets a cleaning job, only to find an unlikely champion in the middle-class lady of the house (Sophie Okonedo).

A comedy drama about mothers and daughters, dreams and reality, and three chords and the truth.

Winner, Dublin Film Critics Award, Best Actress (Jessie Buckley), Dublin International Film Festival, 2019
