Biff to screen Glasgow comedy

A dramatic comedy set in Glasgow is to screen today at the Bermuda International Film Festival monthly film series, BIFFFlix.

Wild Rose stars Jessie Buckley as single mother ex-con Rose-Lynn Harlan, a rebellious country singer who dreams of trading the working-class streets of Glasgow for the Grand Ole Opry of Nashville.

It also includes a performance from Oscar-nominee Julie Walters and an electrifying soundtrack performed by Ms Buckley.

Biff organisers describe Wild Rose as a joyous human story steeped in music, courage, and achieving your dreams, no matter how far away they may appear.

Tony Award-winning actress Sophie Okonedo also features as Rose-Lynn's boss. Ms Buckley, who starred in Beast and the television miniseries Chernobyl, has won two awards for her performance in Wild Rose : the best actress prize at the Dublin Film Critics Awards and an Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking award at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

Wild Rose will screen at 6.30pm at the Speciality Cinema. Tickets, priced $15, are on sale at, or at the cinema box office. The film is rated R and the running time is 101 minutes
