Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley) has recently been released from jail. Forced to wear an ankle monitor and observe a strict curfew, she is unable to return to her job bringing down the house nightly as the lead singer at Glasgow’s own Grand Ole Opry. Resigned, she takes a gig as a house cleaner for the affluent Susannah (Sophie Okonedo), who immediately notices Harlan’s raw talent and authentic country music chops. Together they hatch a plan to get her to the big time in Nashville.
Anchored by a go-for-broke breakout performance from the immensely talented Buckley, WILD ROSE is a crowd-pleasing musical adventure about chasing your dreams and discovering yourself, while simultaneously and playfully subverting the audience’s expectations for exactly that type of narrative arc.
