Film Review: Wild Rose – 3.5 stars


Jessie Buckley shines brightly in Tom Harper’s urban country fable about a young Scottish woman who wants to make it big in the world of US country music. Rose-Lynn Harlan (Buckley) has just returned from a stint in prison and returns to her long-suffering mother Marion (Julie Walters) who has been looking after her young kids whilst she’s been inside. Essentially estranged from her kids, Rose-Lynn reluctantly takes up a cleaning job in order to pay the bills. But she desperately wants to pursue a music career – something that’s at odds with her responsibilities as a young single mother. The film has some great musical sequences and Walters and Buckley easily convince as a strained mother/daughter act.
