By way of example, Cooper cited “Last Days in the Desert,” a description-resistant foray into father-son territory from Garcia, a director known for his stories about women (“Nine Lives,” “Mother and Child”); John Crowley’s “Brooklyn, »

Los Cabos – Two forces of nature – Reese Witherspoon, and the far less benevolent hurricane Odile – took center stage at the opening ceremony of the 3rd Los Cabos Festival, along with the slaughter of 43 students in Ayotzinapa and a posthumous prize for the late great Roger Ebert.
Witherspoon presented Jean-Marc Valle’s true-event-based “Wild,” which saw its Latin American premiere at Los Cabos
Appropriately for a festival which has positioned itself as a meeting place for the Canadian, U.S. and Mexican industries, in “Wild,” Witherspoon plays Cherly Strayed, a woman who sought catharsis from her mother’s death and divorce walking the Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to the Mexican border.
“This movie is very close to my heart,” Witherspoon said on stage.
