Opening Film

WILD ROSE is the electrifying story of Rose-Lynn (2019 MFF Breakthrough Performer Jessie Buckley, star of last year’s award-winning BEAST), an ex-con reunited with her family but wholly unprepared to accept responsibility as a mother. Rose-Lynn dreams of leaving Scotland and moving to Nashville to become a country music star, but her plans are put on hold as she looks to find work and provide for her kids. When her chance finally arrives, can she live out her dreams, or will her real-life circumstances keep them from coming true?

Filled with wonderful songs and a star-making performance from Jessie Buckley, Tom Harper’s WILD ROSE is a story of personal triumph. The Montclair Film Festival is proud to present WILD ROSE as our 2019 Opening Film.|

Q&A with star Jessie Buckley follows the screening, where she will be presented with the MFF 2019 Breakthrough Performer Award.

This screening is co-presented by Investors Bank and BAFTANY.
