“As in Beast, Buckley plays a heroine you’ll want to both cheer and slap. [...] However, it’s Buckley who makes Wild Rose a must-see, the tiniest emotion flitting across her features like ripples over troubled waters. […] Rising star Jessie Buckley rocks in this home-grown answer to A Star Is Born.” 
- Larushka Ivan Zadeh, Metro

“A rousing, crowd-pleasing movie that promises to set hearts and heels pounding.”
- Mark Kermode, The Guardian

“In a soft-centred story like this, you know that the misery and bad luck will always have an upside. The more Rose-Lynn suffers, the more heartfelt her songs will become – and the quicker she will grow up too.” 
Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

“Jessie Buckley impresses again in the story of a woman who wants and needs so much more. A seemingly well-worn narrative becomes a more interesting look at the responsibilities and rights of being a mother with a dream.” 
Terri White, The Empire

"A happy-sad drama of starstruck fever that lifts you up and sweeps you along, touching you down in a puddle of well-earned tears."
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety

"Irresistible...In Jessie Buckley, a true star is born."
The Telegraph

"Jessie Buckley gives a stand-out performance in Wild Rose, an identity story about choice, sacrifice, and knowing who you really are."
- Jenny Desborough, Daily Mirror

Rose-Lynn Harlan, played by BAFTA Rising Star nominee Jessie Buckley (Beast), 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).
