Reese Witherspoon goes on an extraordinary journey in her new film Wild. The movie comes from Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée. It is based on a memoir by Cheryl Strayed, who went on a 1000-mile Pacific Crest Trail after her mom died and her marriage ended. The film looks great, and Witherspoon is sure to give a solid performance.
With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. WILD powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
The movie will be released on December 5th.
