Wild Rose is Not Country & Western
Directed by Tom Harper
Written by Nicole Taylor
Tales of striving artists tend to be complicated and none more so than when those striving artists are women.* So it was interesting to see Jessie Buckley walk the line** between paroled convict, mother, and aspiring singer, not to mention Julie Walters trying to find a middle ground as Buckley’s mother. Aside from the art/family debate, there was also some good stuff around class, a wonderful soundtrack, and great musical performances.
The verdict: Recommended
Cost: $2.99 via Redbox On Demand
Where watched: at home
Consider also watching:
*Because the way things are set up right now there’s a lot of things women have to do on a daily basis before they can get to the art.
