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 »
The rattlesnake Cheryl encounters near the start of the movie is an eastern diamondback, Crotalus adamanteus. Its native range includes the southeastern United States and nowhere near the pacific crest trail. See more »
You get lonely?
Honestly? I'm lonelier in my real life than I am out here. I miss my friends, of course, but it's not as if I have anybody waiting for me at home. How about you?
Why are you here?
I don't know. I just need to find something in myself, you know? I think the trail was good for that. I mean, look.

This has the power to fill you up again, if you'll let it.
My mother used to say something that drove me nuts. There is a sunrise and a sunset every day...

This was a great movie and exactly what I needed! I know from now on to not listen to most of the reviews on here at all. They are the opposite of good!? This was along the lines of Into The Wild, not as good but not bad at all and worth watching. Well done! This could be called a chick flick for real women who want substance, Strength and encouragement from the female in the role. When the world gets to much and is sucking your life away- Get the heck out and walk, climb a mountain , ride a horse ! Push the boundaries of what you think you are capable of and learn! I cried , it was good. I didn't know anything about it until I watched it. I have been coming to IMDb to pick movies with good ratings and people giving good reviews. Only to be disappointed time and again. If you like the Idea of the film , you will likely enjoy it as much as I did.
