Jessie Buckley Soars in US Trailer for Country Singer Film 'Wild Rose'
"If you got a voice, you've got something to say." Neon has debuted the official US trailer for Wild Rose, to go along with the first UK trailer from earlier this year. This premiered at the Toronto and London Film Festivals last year, also just stopped by SXSW. Jessie Buckley (who also stars in the film Beast) plays a young mother from Glasgow, fresh out of prison, who decides to give up everything and move to Nashville to chase her dreams of becoming a country singer. But not without some bumps in the road. An "uplifting story with an original soundtrack about family, dreams and reality, and three chords and the truth." The film's cast includes Julie Walters as her mother, plus Sophie Okonedo, Jamie Sives, Gemma McElhinney, James Harkness, and Ashley Shelton. This looks really good, and reviews have been really good. Enjoy.
Here's the official US trailer (+ new US poster) for Tom Harper's Wild Rose, direct from YouTube:
Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley) 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). Wild Rose is directed by English filmmaker Tom Harper, director of the films The Scouting Book for Boys, War Book, and The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death previously, as well as TV projects. The screenplay is by Nicole Taylor. This premiered at the Toronto & London Film Festivals last year, and also played at SXSW. Neon will release Wild Rose in select US theaters starting June 21st, 2019.
I really liked this actress opposite Tom Hardy is his great mini-series Taboo. This is a totally different role for her and I'm interested. However it is a bit dirivititve and we seen this kind of story before. I'm thinking why back before most were even born...1980...Honeysuckle Rose with Willie Nelson and Amy Irving and directed by the great director Jerry Schatzberg. Not sure I even liked that take on this country western making it big thing. Much of it depends on the music and the songs and I didn't hear anything in this trailer that sounded great. Still, because of this actress I would like to see this.

TABOO was indeed quite the show.

Sorry but the ONLY thing Wild Rose has in common with Honeysuckle Rose is that there is plenty of country music in each. As much as I like Willie, I'd rather listen to Jessie any time
