Set in Glasgow, this musical drama follows Rose, a spirited and slightly frenzied young woman recently out of prison. Although returning to the responsibilities and pressures of being a single mother to two children, she cannot shake her dream of becoming a country singer in Nashville. With a terrific performance from Jessie Buckley, this is an entertaining and heartfelt film that notably highlights working-class families, unconventional motherhood and the role of music in self-discovery.

Also released in cinemas this week

Wonder Park

10-year-old June grew up as a marvellously imaginative girl, spending her childhood drawing and constructing an amusement park called Wonderland with the help from her mother and her friends. After her mother falls sick, June loses all sense of her inventiveness and creativity until she finds the real Wonderland in the middle of the woods. Now June must team up with her new ragtag group of friends to save the park from being destroyed by the villainous Chimpanzombies in this sweet animated tale about overcoming grief and celebrating creativity in any form.
