Movie Diary 5/7/2019

Wild Rose (Tom Harper, 2018). A Glasgow lass dreams of Nashville stardom, but the realities of her life – even beyond being in Glasgow – weigh her down. Jessie Buckley, an impressive presence in last year’s Beast, takes full ownership of the role, without the slightest impulse to ennoble a difficult character. The film doesn’t avoid every pitfall of the rags-to-riches arc, but it creates a few good variations on the theme. (screens in the Seattle International Film Festival)
