Wild (2014) Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée
Cheryl Strayed’s (Reese Witherspoon) life comes crashing down around her after a tragedy. She turns to the solace of the great outdoors. Cheryl makes a rash decision to solo hike the Pacific Crest Trail, a 1,100 mile trail stretching from the Mojave Desert to the Canadian border. Her utter lack of hiking experience does not overpower her determination. The journey tests and fascinates her, instilling a new sense of self, healing, and strength. Based on the 2012 memoir by Cheryl Strayed, this film continues our series of movies based on books.
