Wild Rose - Rescheduled Sunday Cinema

April 25 7:00 to 8:40 pm

Rose-Lynn Harlan has dreamt of becoming a country music star for as long as anyone can remember. But Glasgow isn't exactly Nashville, and, as a convicted criminal and single mother of two young children, Rose-Lynn is more country song than country starlet.

Just released from prison, forced to wear an ankle monitor and keep curfew, she can't return to her job as the house-band singer at Glasgow's Grand Ole Opry. Sporting her white cowboy hat and white leather cowboy boots, Rose-Lynn lands a new job as a housekeeper for the lovely, and very posh, Susannah (Sophie Okonedo). After catching her singing on the job, Susannah's kids quickly become Rose-Lynn's biggest fans and Susannah her enthusiastic patron, determined to help her get to Nashville. But Rose-Lynn's dreams come at a cost. Her mother (Julie Walters), who knows all about abandoning dreams, has always done what she can to help her daughter realize hers, but she also wants her to take responsibility and act like the grownup that her kids need her to be.

"Rose-Lynn's story reminds us that taking responsibility doesn't have to mean giving up hope. And sometimes when we're chasing our dreams, we realize we were living them all along." - TIFF
