Think of 'Romeo and Juliet', but starring Mary Poppins and Christian Grey. Repulsive, right? That's what everybody else in 'Wild Mountain Thyme' thinks too of the romance between Rosemary and Anthony. If their names weren't cut out of formidable classical romances enough, the story sees a pair of lovers who are tried to keep apart by every force under the sun, and eventually beat all odds to come together as one. If your curiosity is piqued enough, here's all you need to know about the movie.

According to the official synopsis, "Headstrong farmer Rosemary Muldoon has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly's love. The problem is, Anthony seems to have inherited a family curse, and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father's plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew, Anthony is jolted into pursuing his dreams."
With Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan as the leading places, 'Wild Mountain Thyme' brags of a high-quality star cast and how!
