“Wild Rose,” a film that follows the journey of a country singer chasing musical stardom, opens Aug. 2 at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center.
The film stars Jessie Buckley as Rose-Lynn Harlan, a Scottish mother who is released from prison in Ireland and travels to Nashville for a chance at making it big in the country scene. Oscar-nominee Julie Walters is also featured in the film, playing Harlan’s mother.
“Wild Rose” shows at the Ross through Aug. 8. It is rated R for language throughout, some sexuality and brief drug material.
Continuing at the Ross this week is “The Last Black Man in San Francisco.” The film tells the story of Jimmie Fails, who dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco and struggles to find belonging in a rapidly-changing city.
