Yes she is talented..yes the film was done well and a different perspective of worldly dreams...but..I am so tired of the woah is me stories and how we are supposed to feel sorry for a single mom who was irresponsible, uncontrollable, selfish, and then amazingly after an awakening we are now supposed to smile that she finally gets some of her crap together and all is well....just another false fairy tale Hollywood style...

When it comes to dream-come-true stories about performers, I’m rarely moved. (Case in point: I was more annoyed than impressed with the recent remake of "A Star is Born.") But I’m exercising restraint in praising "Wild Rose" as one of the best times I’ve spent in the theater in 2019… with a suspicion that I might enjoy it even more the second time. For all of its formulaic turns, Tom Harper’s fairy tale cut right through all of my skepticism and made me a fan. Check it out.

The darling lead actress and the character she plays is vulnerable, reckless, irritating, tender, talented and believes in that one thing above all other things, that she was born to sing. And she can sing both rockabilly and ballads. She has a great mother and two confused kids but because of the grandmothering are fairly well adjusted.
It's entertaining, good soundtrack, pretty countryside and fun but hurts a little bit too, like a good country song can.

This is a movie that attempts to romanticize the life of a woman with a lofty ambition and two young children, who is not very intelligent and lacks any sense of responsibility. Jessie Buckley does have a great singing voice though, that is perfect for the pathos of country music. Meh.

Rose-Lynn is wild - with lessons to learn and dreams to pursue
feisty but irresponsible she sings her way back to home
3 great female leads, mothers all and varied
I got caught by the energy if not by the country music

The best movie I've seen this year. If you want a feel good/comfort movie for a cold, rainy night then this is for you.

He wore a Texas tuxedo
She wore Cadillac green
They went together Like
a match and gasoline
Big Davey Campbell
from the abattoir
And Annie O'Malley
Works the Laurieston bar
4,000 miles east
of Tennessee
Paisley Road West
is the place to be
He was a king of the cowboys
Stealing the night
She was a queen of Memphis
Robbing the bank of life
Whoa-oh, robbing
the bank of life
Two shots of whisky
and an Irn-Bru
Hands up!
No one move!
King of the cowboys
Stealing the night
Queen of Memphis
Robbing the bank of life
King of the cowboys
Stealing the night
Queen of Memphis
Robbing the bank of life
Robbing the bank of life

Learn a trade. Go to college. You're not listening. I don't care what you do, but do something.
-I've got my talent and I'm gonna use that.
Have you not been watching telly? There's no shortage of folk who can sing.

If you're no' even prepared to acknowledge their existence, there's no hope for you. And there's sure as hell none for them.

I wanted you to take responsibility, but I never meant to take away your hope.
-I don't know what you're talking about.
Maybe there is more to life or maybe there isnae. I don't know. I've never been further than Dunoon. But you need to away and see.
