Parting shot

From tomorrow, people in Ireland will be able to rent controversial romcom Wild Mountain Thyme.

There was plenty of online rage and ranting about the authenticity of the drama last year but now you’ll get a chance to watch it on platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, Google Play and Apple TV.

Its trailer was released last November to some criticisms of the tone and the Irish accents.

It is a romance starring Emily Blunt as the “passionate” Rosemary Muldoon who is in love with her neighbour Anthony Reilly (played by Jamie Dornan).
