Young single mother Rose-Lynn Harlan (former musical reality talent show contestant Jessie Buckley, who came in second on the BBC show I’d Do Anything), 23, lives in Glasgow, but dreams of becoming a country star in Nashville.
After spending a year in prison on drug-related offences, Rose-Lynn goes home to her mother (Julie Walters), who has been taking care of Rose-Lynn‘s two young children. Rose-Lynn is indifferent to her kids, seeing them as an impediment on her road to stardom.
Once a singer at a local country music club, Rose-Lynn now has a strict parole curfew and an ankle monitor, which precludes her from returning to the stage. Instead, she finds a job as a housekeeper for an English woman, Susannah (Sophie Okonedo), during the day. When Susannah and her children hear Rose-Lynn singing while working, they become fans and want to help her reach her dreams.

eOne Films release WILD ROSE: June 21, 2019 – Toronto July 5, 2019 – Vancouver, Montreal
Rose-Lynn Harlan (2017 TIFF Rising Star Jessie Buckley) has always dreamed of becoming a country music star in Nashville, Tennessee. However, achieving her life’s dream seems like an impossible feat considering she is currently living in Glasgow, is a convicted criminal and a single mother of two. Wild Rose will have its World Premiere at TIFF in the Special Presentations category.
What make’s this Film stand out from other Country Music films is that it takes place somewhere you would never associate Country Music with, and it also has an unconventional lead character. Screenwriter Nicole Taylor has written a complex and authentic protagonist. And bonafide chameleon Jessie Buckley explodes Rose-Lynn on the screen like the most beautiful firework show.
Wild Rose will screen at TIFFSaturday, September 8 at 9:30 PM at Ryerson Theatre and Monday, September 10 at 3:15 PM at Scotiabank 1.
