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
Cheryl (Reese Witherspoon) sings a song during the movie, "How's The World Treating You?", originally sung by Elvis Presley. This song appeared in Big Little Lies (2017), sung by Witherspoon's character's ex-husband. See more »
When she pitches her tent, she never stakes down the guy lines that hold the window flaps out. Not only would it be hard to get a breeze in the desert that way, a good wind would blow it down. See more »
Fucking Saint Patrick. Go to hell, all you saints.

Thank you, God, for showing me the way... As if he gives a shit... I'm sorry, but God is a ruthless bitch.

Your life will most likely determine whether or not you like this film, whether or not it moves you.
I read the book and was not sure how they were going to make such an introspective novel into a movie but they did a pretty good job. My group of friends had mixed reactions, some of us were deeply moved (myself included) some where wondering why we were...
I felt the way her story was portrayed in flashbacks was very effective and about the only way to tell this story. It can never be as deep as the emotions in the book and it had to skim over a lot but still, for me and others I was with it was very powerful.
On a superficial side note... I wish she had looked dirtier. Her hair and clothes always looked too clean for what she was doing with very minimal hygiene.
