Wild. 2014. USA. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée. 115 min.
"Adapted by writer Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About a Boy, An Education) from Cheryl Strayed's bestselling 2012 memoir, director Jean-Marc Vallée's follow-up to his Oscar-winning Dallas Buyers Club is an extraordinary odyssey of loss and self-discovery, powered by Reese Witherspoon's award-worthy characterization. A dramatization of Strayed's solo, 1,100-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail, Wild is at once an epic cinematic experience and a profoundly intimate personal narrative" (Toronto FIlm Festival 2014).
