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, expertly portrayed by Oscar-nominee Julie Walters, as she pursues her bold ambition of a one-way ticket to musical stardom. With the support of her boss (Sophie Okonedo), Rose-Lynn embarks on a life-changing journey that challenges her sense of self and helps her discover her true voice. Complete with an electrifying soundtrack performed by Buckley, Wild Rose is a joyous human story steeped in music, courage, family, and achieving your dreams - no matter how far away they may appear. After all, all you need are three chords and the truth.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: There's no shortage of star-is-born stories, but Wild Rose proves they can still be thoroughly entertaining -- and marks its own transcendent moment for lead Jessie Buckley.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wild Rose is a British drama about a young Scottish ex-con named Rose-Lynn (Jessie Buckley, in a breakthrough performance) who, with the help of her well-connected employer, pursues her dream of becoming a country singer. There's lots of strong language (mostly "f--k," "s--t," "pr--k"), social drinking (everyone is of age), and cigarette smoking (which is still far more prevalent in Europe), as well as a quick sex scene and kissing. In one brief scene, an adult character smokes marijuana. With its familiar story line ("working-class girl hopes to make it big one day") and messages of redemption, hard work, and gratitude, the movie provides several discussion opportunities for families with older teens. Julie Walters and Sophie Okonedo co-star.
