From Oscar®-, Tony®- and Pulitzer Prize®-winning writer and director John
Patrick Shanley (Doubt, Moonstruck), WILD MOUNTAIN THYME
captures the romance, lyricism and transcendent beauty of the Irish
countryside in an extraordinary love story between two lonely souls.
Passionate, determined and smart, Rosemary Muldoon (Emily Blunt) has been
in love with her neighbour Anthony Reilly (Jamie Dornan) since they were 10
years old. It seems that everyone in their farming community knows they
were meant for each other — except Anthony.
An eccentric introvert, Anthony has spent his entire life working on the
family farm alongside his father Tony (Christopher Walken). The aging Tony
blindsides Anthony with his plan to sell the farm to Adam (Jon Hamm), his
wealthy American nephew, because he doubts his son has what it takes to run
it. And when Adam comes to visit, his obvious interest in Rosemary
complicates the situation further.
With everything that’s important to him about to slip through his fingers,
Anthony has to move quickly, but a series of losses and his own certainty
that he is unlovable leaves his future — and Rosemary’s — in doubt. Filled
with Ireland’s glorious vistas, poetic spirit and acerbic wit, WILD MOUNTAIN THYME draws on Shanley’s Irish roots for a
comedic and moving once-upon-a-time romance.
