WILD MOUNTAIN THYME movie review

WILD MOUNTAIN THYME movie poster

Janet's TAKE: #WildMountainThyme is a charming romance with a high-powered  cast that makes it all believable. Based on the play "Outside Mullingar" by John Patrick Shanley, this story moves along at a leisurely pace that lets you enjoy the gorgeous countryside scenery and lilting Irish music. Grade/B+

The character-driven plot is elevated by the lead performances.  Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan are so good that they will have you rooting for the couple to get together.
