Jessie Buckley (BEAST, IFFBoston 2018) delivers an unforgettable, star-making performance as Rose-Lynn Harlan, a rebellious country singer and mother of two who is fresh out of prison. Rose-Lynn dreams of trading the working-class streets of Glasgow for the Grand Ole Opry of Nashville. In the meantime, she has to wear an ankle bracelet, hold down a far more mundane job, and navigate a strained relationship with her own mother, Marion (Julie Walters), who has been caring for her children while Rose-Lynn was incarcerated.

Buckley has united critics in praise and took home the Best Actress award at the Dublin International Film Festival for her electric, heart-rending portrayal of the scrappy heroine in this powerful film directed by Tom Harper (War & Peace). Sophie Okonedo also stars.
