INTO FILM FESTIVAL - Screening & Talk: Wild Rose with Screenskills
Set in Glasgow, this musical drama follows Rose, a spirited and slightly frenzied young woman recently out of prison. Although returning to the responsibilities and pressures of being a single mother to two children, she cannot shake her dream of becoming a country singer in Nashville. Persuaded by her mother to get a paying job, she is hired to clean the home of a middle-class family, where she forms an unlikely friendship with her boss Susannah, who is bowled over by Rose's raw talent and encourages her to pursue a career in music. With a terrific performance from Jessie Buckley, this is an entertaining and heartfelt film that notably highlights working-class families, unconventional motherhood and the role of music in self-discovery.
