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
Chris Kesting from Camas, Washington found the boot that Reese Witherspoon threw off the cliff in the opening scene, while hiking with a friend near Mt. Hood Skibowl in March 2015. He hopes to have it signed by Reese, and it is now on display in his living room. See more »
Cheryl writes a quote in a log book partway through the movie, and dates it August 19. Later in the movie, she enters Oregon, and the film shows that it is August 8. See more »
Don't worry, I don't bite.
I don't mind biting. Oh, my God. I can't believe I just said that. I'm so sorry. I've been on my own for a little while.

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.
