Genre: Comedy, Drama and Music
Conclusion: 4/5
They couldn’t have done this film without Jessie Buckley who was the leading star. This could be a breakthrough film for Jessie Buckley. I just felt that the role she played comes so naturally to her. I am not really a fan or like this style of country music but I came out really enjoying it. Great to see Jessie Buckley back again after Beast (2017) in which she gave an amazing performance alongside Johnny Flynn. She is back again working with the same director as she did with the TV adaptation a few years ago of War and Piece. All of her roles have been very different so far which shows she is a very versatile actor. This film did remind me somewhat of Billy Elliot, 2000, as I found it had the same sort of style. Fantastic acting by all the supporting players, including Julie Walters, Sophie Okonedo and many more. Last but not least, a fantastic cameo by Bob Harris.
