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

Trivia

Jean-Marc Vallée would not let Reese Witherspoon read the instruction manual to the tent, or the stove. All of the frustration showed on screen was genuine. See more »

Goofs

The rattlesnake Cheryl encounters near the start of the movie is an eastern diamondback, Crotalus adamanteus. Its native range includes the southeastern United States and nowhere near the pacific crest trail. See more »

Quotes

Cheryl: I know only that I didn't need to reach with my bare hands anymore. That seeing the fish beneath the surface was enough. That it was everything. My life -like all lives- mysterious, irrevocable and sacred, so very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. How wild it was, to let it be.

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.
