Directed by Tom Harper from a script by Nicole Taylor, WILD ROSE is an uplifting story of a young Scottish mother fresh out of prison, who dreams of becoming a country singer.
Rose-Lynn Harlan, played by Kerry actress Jessie Buckley (‘Beast,’ ‘Taboo’), 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 in Nashville. Her mum Marion (Julie Walters) 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 (Sophie Okonedo).
