From writer and director John Patrick Shanley (Doubt, Moonstruck), WILD MOUNTAIN THYME captures the romance, lyricism and transcendent beauty of the Irish countryside in a 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.
Lucky Emily Blunt gets to decide between Jamie Dornan and Jon Hamm, I wonder if she was involved in the casting process, that’s a tough day at the office Emily!
