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

don't bother
20 September 2014 | by ataversaSee all my reviews

This could have been a good movie. Unfortunately we were served a vapid predictable one instead. While the scenery was wonderful the plot was lost in the typical sex, drugs, sentimental loss, animal imagery and ego trip we have all come to know and hate. Nick Hornby's focus on the down side of the journey (what came before) left the cathartic experience (what came after) lost. The movie was boring and Witherspoon's mumbled dialog and good looks could not pull us out of the doldrums. The emotional manipulation was so obvious that it was with great relief that finally the film ended. If this is the best the American film industry can produce we should all turn our attention to other countries for emotional depth and real drama.
