"Wild" Film Review
Trailer: Wild - Fox Searchlight
One Woman's Transformative Journey
An excellent film that shows the transformative journey of a woman working to find herself through an extensive hike through the challenging Pacific Crest Trail.
An excellent performance by Reese Witherspoon anchors a great movie about love, loss, and dealing with life and then moving on with one's life.
Directed by "Dallas Buyer's Club" helmer Jean-Marc Vallée, this movie beautifully balances the real-life story of Cheryl Strayed as she goes on her trek across the Pacific Crest Trail with flashbacks to what led her to take the trip.
Screenwriter Nick Hornby crafts an excellent blueprint for Vallée to follow. Well made and inspiring. It's great to know a movie like this can still be made!
****1/2 (4 1/2 Out of 5 Stars)
