WILD ROSE Opening at the Cinema Art Theater
Starting on July 12, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Wild Rose,” a musical drama about a rebellious country singer, Rose-Lynn Harlan (played by Jessie Buckley), who dreams of trading the working-class streets of Glasgow for the Grand Ole Opry of Nashville.
Fresh out of prison, Rose-Lynn juggles her menial job, two children and committed mother, expertly portrayed by Oscar®-nominee Julie Walters, as she pursues her bold ambition of a one-way ticket to musical stardom. With the support of her boss (Sophie Okonedo), Rose-Lynn embarks on a life-changing journey that challenges her sense of self and helps her discover her true voice.
Complete with an electrifying soundtrack performed by Buckley, “Wild Rose” is a joyous human story steeped in music, courage, family, and achieving your dreams - no matter how far away they may appear. After all, all you need are three chords and the truth. [US, 2019, 101 minutes, Rating: R].
“A dynamic, inspiring tale of setbacks and unexpected victories, set to a vibrant, raucous country soundtrack full of old classics and new original songs,” claims Anne Cohen of “Refinery29.” Samuel R. Murrian of “Parade Magazine” writes, “I was completely enthralled by every inch of ‘Wild Rose.’ This is a really special, affecting film that leaves a mark. It's one of the best films of 2019.”
Screening times are 3 pm and 6 pm on Friday (July 12), 3 pm on Saturday (July 13), 3 pm on Sunday (July 14), 1 pm on Monday (July 15), 6 pm on Wednesday (July 17).
