Wild Rose review by Jez Gibson

Words cannot describe how much you need to experience the rare and raw beauty of the transcendent Wild Rose.

From a very different universe to our world that is about to be bombarded with everything Avengers, can I implore you to follow the yellow brick road to Glasgow – led by director Tom Harper, inspired by the writing of Nicole Taylor and brazenly belted out of the park by the increasingly exceptional Jessie Buckley and steadfast Julie Walters.

We follow the story of Rose who is both jailbird and songbird, as she pursues her passion and dreamed destiny to be a country singer, where her past and present predicaments pervade what may be possible.

This is the antithesis to the recent A Star is Born. Although that film accomplished much on so many levels, this is the comparatively poorer cousin that is so much richer in the rewards that it ravishes upon us, its’ audience.

I am sure that quite rightly awards will follow this perfect picture. Jessie Buckley will hypnotise you with her performance. This really is a “performance” of the highest level of a rising star who doesn’t need to ever reasonably rise above what is on show here. Her naturalistic acting is rooted in her musicality. She gives everything possible, personified by the genre of music that possesses her character Rose to be “three chords from the truth”.

Wild Rose is magnetic, magnificent and a must see movie – 10/10 and 5 stellar *’s.

@paulkerensa There is no equal to the WW so you might as well stop the search. It’s just what makes you feel something similar of which suggestions here are as good as it gets.
The only show that for me feels as “complete” is a totally different beast altogether - The Wire.

@paulkerensa West Wing is untouchable, but having read suggestions above, I’d throw in The Comey Rule which was just a few episodes and have just started The Morning Show, which feels a bit WW’ish.

So paid for a live streamed local gig tonight, rather than cheering these guys on personally. Sad face...
Watch out for @TheChocoLas who are a huge talent, and really nicely done @BOILEROOM https://t.co/CouqLXwr9v

Amazing sound, listen to and love them please. Bravo @thelosttrades https://t.co/cz7dJH2yty
