Brief Synopsis – An aspiring country singer living in Scotland dreams of becoming a superstar in Nashville.
My Take on it – Fun film that works due to the way that they show how the main character does all she can to try and aspire to fulfill her dreams.
The cast is fun to watch and they do a nice job developing the characters in intriguing ways.
Jessie Buckley does a wonderful job in the lead role and helps make us care s much about what happens to her as the story unfolds.
The rest of the supporting cast is also great and Julie Walters stands out among all of them.
The Scottish accents in the film feel quite genuine even if they aren’t all originated from there.
I’m always amazed at the way that accents disappear when singing and as a kid, I recall that it always surprised me to hear musicians speak because even ones with very prominent accents have very different speaking and singing voices.
This film is further proof of that.
As with many films like this one, the biggest selling point is the music which is unique and innovative in the way that things play out.
The film’s featured song Glasgow is superb and I’m surprised that it didn’t get more attention during awards season when it came out.

The character arc is a bit too predictable and follows the normal path of many other films from this genre, yet still is able to now and then find its voice along the way.
