  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Takes the “Star Is Born” formula we’ve seen before, and gives it a level of grit and raw emotional heft that allows it to soar, especially with Jessie Buckley’s terrific performance.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Jessie Buckley is astonishing.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: Rose-Lynn is engaged in a tug-of-war between the life she’s always wanted and that which she regrets creating. Choosing one above the other will only guarantee more heartache.
  • Bev Questad @ It’s Just Movies
    • Excerpt: “Wild Rose” is a catchy story you can’t leave, despite the problematic accent for American viewers. The first half of the film could be helped with subtitles, but the story and acting are so strong that the challenge is worth it.
  • Jonathan Richards @ santafenewmexican.com
    • Excerpt: Her character is not very responsible, but her selfishness and carelessness are mitigated by her charm and her passion. Buckley’s performance is captivating and gives the movie a strong claim on your time and your good wishes.
  • Don Shanahan @ Every Movie Has a Lesson
    • Excerpt: Shouts of anger and tirades of tears fuel the fights and the vocals churning from Jessie Buckley in what will stand as one of the finest performances of the year.

    • Excerpt: A safe starting point for an emerging cast and crew, but more audition than movie.
