Wild Rose I Trailer

A young woman from Glasgow, bursting with talent and charisma, dreams of escaping her ordinary life and making it big as a country music singer in Nashville.

Rose-Lynn Harlan is bursting with raw 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 as a country singer. Her mum Marion has had a bellyful of Rose-Lynn’s Nashville nonsense.

Forced to take responsibility, Rose-Lynn gets a cleaning job, only to find an unlikely champion in the middle-class lady of the house. Wild Rose is a comedy-drama about mothers and daughters, dreams and reality, three chords and the truth.

Jessie Buckley delivers a finely tuned performance of triumph and tragedy in Wild Rose, a beautifully crafted, heartfelt film in the style of British classics like Little Voice and Billy Elliott.
