This film is about Rose-Lynn Harlan, a young Scottish woman who aspires to be a Country & Western singer. Rose was raised in a working-class section of Glasgow, the only child of a longtime bakery attendant Marion (a subtly no-nonsense Julie Walters, providing tough love). But she believes she should have been born in America, and that she belongs in Nashville.
Fresh out from the jail after a year condemned by narcotics possession, Rose-Lynn is a 23-years old working-class girl from Glasgow, who tries rectify her chaotic life. Foul-mouthed, streetwise, rebellious and free-spirited, Rose-Lynn meets again her little children, older Wynonna and younger Lyle, cared for since her imprisonment by their grandmother Marion, who despises openly her daughter's lifestyle. Worker in the bakery of a shopping center along 20 years, Marion struggles to understand her stranded daughter, who becomes determined to travel Nashville, Tennesse (USA) to turn in a famous country singer.
Her redoubtable mum, Marion, wants Rose-Lynn to settle down and take care of the kids she’s been minding but Rose-Lynn has a wanderlust that not even a strictly enforced curfew can quell.
Wild Rose is uplifting and bittersweet, rousing and crowd-pleasing all at once, and one that promises to set hearts and heels pounding.

CHRISTMAS FILM EXTRAVAGANZA!
Ticket price includes Prosecco on arrival, Fish & Chips, and ice cream.
Fisherman's Friends (2019) is a British musical comedy-drama in which a group of fishermen with a talent for singing Sea Shanties are offered the chance to sign a record deal.
A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy).
He becomes the ultimate 'fish out of water' as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune.
As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
The film is inspired by the true story of the Fisherman’s Friends, an all-male a capella folk singing group from Port Isaac in Cornwall who in the noughties became an unexpected hit for their authentic sea shanties.
