Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line) gives an astonishingly raw performance in Wild. Adapted by Nick Hornby (About a Boy, An Education) from Cheryl Strayed’s 2012 memoir about a 1,100-mile journey of self-discovery and helmed by Jean-Marc Vallee (C.R.A.Z.Y., Dallas Buyers Club), it casts Witherspoon as the emotionally unstable Cheryl, who undertakes a solo marathon hike along the Pacific Crest Trail mourning a death in her family, the break-up of her marriage and coping with the fallout from addiction. Switching between Cheryl’s backstory and her survivalist, self-exploratory trip on the trail, this is a profoundly inspiring film with a superb performance from Witherspoon.
