Relaxed Screening: Wild Rose (15)

Wild Rose

Rising star Jessie Buckley gives a charming, star-making performance in this story about a young mother from Glasgow dreaming of a life in Nashville.

Rose-Lynn Harlan (Buckley) is a great country singer. Unfortunately, she’s also an ex-con just released from prison, with an electronic tag, two young children to support, and a disapproving mother (Julie Walters). And, she’s based in Glasgow.

Yet, after taking a job as a housekeeper for a wealthy neighbour – beautifully played by Sophie Okenedo – she finally meets people who take her talent and ambition seriously, and she begins a journey that might just make her dreams come true, against the odds.

Never trite or saccharine, this is an underdog story with real heart, humour and pathos, with excellent performances and an irresistible country music soundtrack.

Relaxed Screenings
Relaxed screenings are specially tailored for film fans who may be on the autistic spectrum, have Tourette Syndrome, anxiety, sensory difficulties or other learning disabilities.

The cinema environment is tailored to the needs of the audience by having the lights dimmed, though not off, and the volume levels a little lower than usual. Attendees are free to sit in whichever seat they like and can enter and exit the room at any time, with easy access for any wheelchair users. Staff are trained and ready to assist with any help the audience may need during these trips to the cinema at Barbican.

A visual guide to our cinemas is available to download here.
