After some romantic comedies with Ireland in the background, writer and director John Patrick Shanley made Wild Mountain Thyme, a film adaptation of the drama “Outside Mullingar.” He cast a star duo in the lead roles.
“Wild Mountain Thyme” is an Irish story about Rosemary Muldoon (Emily Blunt, known for her role as Emily in “The Devil Wears Prada”) and Anthony Reillym (Jamie Dornan, or Christian from “50 Shades of Gray”), who have known each other since childhood . The young farmer has always had a crush on the neighbor. Anthony, belittled by his father, who plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew, struggles with emotional problems. Only Rosemary can help him.
“Wild Mountain Thyme” was directed by John Patrick Shanley and the film is an adaptation of his Broadway play “Outside Mullingar” from 2014.
