Fifth about The Seventh

Wild Rose

Wild Rose: the chase of a seemingly impossible dream begets entertaining stories, and director Tom Harper has one of those in his hands here. The main character is interesting: she is talented and determined, but deeply flawed in so many different ways. This allows for a thematically rich unfurling of the story. The film is centered around a phenomenal turn by Jessie Buckley; for starters, she has a great singing voice and nails the musical performances, but, more relevantly, she projects the emotional depth and complexity of her troubled character very well. Julie Walters gives a fine performance as her loving and supporting, but tough mother. Sophie Okonedo is likewise good as the likable patron-to-be. The film is generally well-made, as it displays the abodes of blue-collar and white-collar families of Glasgow. Good selection of songs
