Storyline

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

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.
