Up-and-coming Irish actress and singer Jessie Buckley, who previously co-starred on the Tom Hardy-created FX series "Taboo" and has earned accolades for her leading turn in 2017's British thriller "Beast," embraces her inner Dolly Parton as she delivers what has been hailed as a star-making performance in the Scottish country singer drama "Wild Rose," for which an official U.S. trailer has been released.

Buckley, who will also appear in HBO's upcoming nuclear plant disaster miniseries "Chernobyl," plays a streetwise Scottish ruffian and single mother who, after being released from jail, has decided to pursue her lifelong dream of moving to Nashville to become a famous country singer.

Directed by British TV and film helmer Tom Harper (Peaky Blinders, The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death) and written by BAFTA-winning TV writer Nicole Taylor (Three Girls, The Hour, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), the heartfelt film also stars two-time Oscar nominee Julie Walters (Billy Elliot, Mamma Mia!) and Oscar nominee Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda).

After premiering to strong reviews at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, "Wild Rose" is being released in select U.S. theaters beginning June 14th.

synopsis:
Jessie Buckley delivers an unforgettable, star-making performance as Rose-Lynn Harlan, a rebellious country singer who dreams of trading the working-class streets of Glasgow for the Grand Ole Opry of Nashville.

Fresh out of prison, Rose-Lynn precariously 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 exclusively 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.
