The dramas and the comedies go hand in hand this weekend among the novelties that land on the card. Among the different proposals stand out The tale of the weasels, comedy of black humor of Juan José Campanella, the musical drama Wild rose or the romance with dark side that Virginie Efira stars in An impossible love. But the thriller also has its space Serenity, with Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway and the terror of the new delivery of the Annabelle doll. We review all the premieres of this Friday, July 12:
Tom Harper directed Jessie Buckley in a small role in the television miniseries War and peace and has returned to count on her for a role only suitable for thoroughbred interpreters. And the Irish, who has jumped to stardom for her character Lyudmilla Ignatenko in the hit HBO series Chernobyl, is the real engine of a film that puts the spotlight on the dreams of a young girl from a working class neighborhood of Glasgow, with two small children and who has spent a whole year in prison, to become the new sensation of country. Her Rose-Lynn Harlan is a daring, fun and irresponsible twentieswoman for whom country is everything: those three chords and the truth that she has tattooed on her arm push her to fight for her desires of triumph in the world of music. It is the only thing that is good and therefore does not resist giving up in order to become the new Dolly Parton.
Her children, whom she had before 18, are strangers who have been taking care of her devoted mother (magnificent Julie Walters) until she returns home from her stay behind bars. The tension between mother and daughter regarding the concept of responsibility is felt in a home without a male head. And then the big question arises: will he settle his head and look for a stable job to take care of his offspring or will he give up everything to reach Nashville, the cradle of country, with the aim of fulfilling his dreams ?.
That wild rose to which the title alludes would not be the same without the magnetic presence of Buckley, who surrenders body and soul with an exquisite naturalness in the mission of shaping a being full of energy, at times indomitable, who must write his own song with all the wind against. And in that path not exempt of thorns that drinks in a certain way from the cinema of social thematic so characteristic of Ken Loach, the story of Rose-Lynn is debated in the difficult tessitura of choosing between family or success. The actress demonstrates her talent as a great singer in a film of simple and predictable appearance that in the hands of Harper and the female lead character rises to a vibrant and touching experience. Pure show.
