Julie Walters, Jessie Buckley and Sophie Okonedo star in acclaimed new film at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (July 26, 2019) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the critically-acclaimed new film “Wild Rose” Aug. 2-7 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
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 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.
Critics and audiences are swooning over the feel-good hit of the summer!
