“Wild Rose,” one of the buzziest films coming out of the Toronto International Film Festival, was somewhat inspired by an “X Factor” contestant, said the film’s screenwriter.
“[The idea for the film] came from me being from Glasgow, me being obsessed with country music and an episode of ‘The X Factor’ long ago, when there was a girl singing on it and she belted out this tune and, of course, you are rooting for her,” Nicole Taylor told TheWrap’s Steve Pond at the festival.
Adding that this contestant’s life was “a total mess,” she “didn’t know what to want for her.”
