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.
Entirely delightful, fresh as a Scottish summer evening.
Wild Rose is so much fun that you only half notice its left-turn from the star-is-born setup to something altogether richer and more emotionally satisfying.
A beautiful story told with a huge amount of tenderness and love for its unconventional heroine. Jessie Buckley is one of the brightest stars in our sky right now.
Jessie Buckley gives a stand-out performance in Wild Rose, an identity story about choice, sacrifice, and knowing who you really are.
Finding balance between what you've done and what you feel destined to do resonates beyond country music. When the film sings, it soars - Jessie Buckley was born to be a star.
After she travels to Nashville, Rose comes to a realisation that is so trite and conformist that it feels engineered purely to give the story a feel-good finale, rather than the gritty realism it initially promised.
This is not really an A Star is Born kind of film, where the aspiring singer reaches the totality of her dreams in the blink of an eye. Wild Rose insists no such totality exists in life, and that the path to success is always liable to be repaved.
Jessie Buckley delivers a star-making performance.
Much will be made of former musical reality show contestant Buckley's phenomenal performances. But it's as an actor that her RADA-trained register impresses the most.
It's a little better than some of its ilk, thanks to Buckley's commitment and some nice support from Sophie Okonedo and Julie Walters, but you can feel the formula in every scene.
