Wild RoseWild Rose‘s Rose-Lynn (Jessie Buckley) has all the trappings of a country star. A single mother and an ex-con with a name that just demands a Tennessee accent, she lives and breathes Country. Enamoured with the “three chords and the truth” found in true country songs, Rose-Lynn dreams of Nashville and stardom in Tom Harper’s uplifting tale.

With one white cowboy-booted foot always out the door, Rose-Lynn’s struggle for freedom often borders on selfishness, especially with regards to her two young kids (where do they fit in her Grand Ole Opry dreams?). But Buckley utterly sells Rose’s sheer hunger, and when we see the way she comes alive onstage, it’s hard to begrudge her these dreams.

The always-excellent Sophie Okonedo and Julie Walters give splendid supporting turns as Rose’s keen employer-turned-friend and long-suffering mother respectively, but the film, of course, belongs to Buckley.
