John Patrick Shanley, who created the classic, Moonstruck, brings his sweeping romantic vision to Ireland with Wild Mountain Thyme. The headstrong farmer Rosemary Muldoon (Emily Blunt) has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly's love. The problem is Anthony (Jamie Dornan) seems to have inherited a family curse, and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father Tony Reilly's (Christopher Walken) plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew (Jon Hamm), Anthony is jolted into pursuing his dreams in this comedic, moving and wildly romantic tale.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Fatally undermined by dodgy accents and a questionable story, Wild Mountain Thyme is a baffling misfire for a talented filmmaker and impressive cast.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wild Mountain Thyme is a romantic drama about two star-crossed lovers, with themes of grief, suicidal references, and drinking and smoking. Set in rural Ireland, Rosemary (Emily Blunt) is a strong female lead who knows exactly what she wants and has succeeded in her job as a farmer -- a traditionally male-dominated profession. There's a further interesting and progressive role-reversal in that Rosemary is the one actively pursuing romance -- in the shape of Anthony (Jamie Dornan) -- whereas typically it's often the male doing the chasing. The theme of grief is explored delicately, as Rosemary comes to terms with the recent death of her father. There are occasional references relating to violence, including suicide. There is little by way of bad language with the term "gobshite" used on occasion. But characters are seen drinking and smoking frequently. When Rosemary quits cigarettes, she claims that it has made her depressed. The movie has been criticized for some of the accents of the non-Irish cast members -- namely Blunt and Christopher Walken -- as well as some stereotyping. In one scene, Anthony makes reference to "half of Ireland" liking a fight. The movie is based on a play called Outside Mullingar by John Patrick Shanley, who also directs the film.
