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, strengthen, and ultimately heals her. Written by Spencer Higham

Reese Witherspoon was picked by Cheryl Strayed to portray her in this film. See more »


Losing toenails during a trail walk isn't uncommon, however toenails fall off in a rather painless process following the gradual formation of a blister underneath it instead of a bleeding mess depicted at the start of the film. The way Cheryl loses her big toenail could only be attributed to a severe injury and not to the walk itself. See more »


Paul: [on phone] I'm sorry that you have to walk 1000 miles just to...
Cheryl: Finish that sentence. Why do I have to walk 1000 miles?

Bravo, Reese Witherspoon !
6 February 2015 | by briandmiddletonSee all my reviews

We loved this film...and this is NOT a "chick flick"...it's for ALL of us and it's about our search for our individual and authentic selves - male or female... so don't miss it!

I think Reese Witherspoon has created an incredible film with her team. Kudos ...one of your best ever films and we are looking for more from your production company in the future. An Oscar nomination is so well deserved and we will be looking for you on TV that night.

I Love how you portrayed the essence of a silent retreat and all the riches and gifts and stresses of doing one. WILD does an amazing job of illustrating this worthwhile experience in an individual's life.
