Julie Walters plays the strong, struggling Glaswegian mother of aspiring country-and-western singer Rose-Lynn Harlan in an uplifting story that critics have pronounced much more than a performance of country and western songs. Since the age of 14 Rose-Lynn (played and sung brilliantly by Jessie Buckley) has been front woman for the house band of Glasgow’s version of Grand Ole Oprey, dreaming of following Dolly Parton to Nashville Tennessee. As an ex-con, estranged from her two children, she takes on daily cleaning to retrieve survival, identity and family relationships. The very talented daily help is rescued by another very accomplished British actress in Sophie Okenedo, playing a housewife. The Wild Rose album of 21 songs by Christy Lemaire provides another fine element of a quirky, positive story with universal appeal.
