John Patrick Shanley, who created the classic MOONSTRUCK, brings his sweeping romantic vision to Ireland with Wild Mountain Thyme. The headstrong farmer Rosemary Muldoon (Emily Blunt) has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly's love. The problem is Anthony (Jamie Dornan) seems to have inherited a family curse, and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father Tony's (Christopher Walken) plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew (Jon Hamm), Anthony is jolted into pursuing his dreams in this comedic, moving and wildly romantic tale.

User Reviews

Quirky, Uneven, Bizarre
14 December 2020 | by brianebadgerSee all my reviews

We were so excited to see this movie on our date night, and were left perplexed. Most good films have scenes that mean something to the overall plot, but being based on a play there are scenes written in that serve no purpose. Besides the Irish clichés that abound, the main characters behave in ways unlike any person you've ever met- and that's not a good thing. And even though it's plot is being stretched out in order to make it into a full-length film, there are holes in the plot that make you wonder what was left on the cutting room floor. Quirky, uneven, and just bizarre.
