Wild Rose (Tom Harper, 2018) wr. Nicole Taylor; Jessie Buckley, Julie Walters, Sophie Okonedo
blurb: A troubled young Glaswegian woman dreams of becoming a Nashville country star.
This film is not about the character played by Jessie Buckley: it's more about her. She's an astonishing able musician and actress. The film is well done, but it's ordinary; its star is not. She's an Irish woman playing a Glaswegian country singer in Nashville. (!) See also I'm Thinking about Ending Things (Charlie Kaufman, 2020) : that's her as well.
