Wild - DVD W6681After years of reckless behaviour, drug abuse and the destruction of her marriage, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) makes a rash decision. Haunted by memories of her mother Bobbi (Laura Dern) and with absolutely no experience, she sets out to hike more than a thousand miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, in California, all on her own. Wild may sound like a film about redemption, but it’s more about learning to live with what you can’t control — and accepting what you can control, which is sometimes just as difficult. It’s also a movie in which you can feel the spirit of the material infusing all involved in its making, both as artists and as human beings, and what results is that special kind of magic that occurs when even the simplest of songs sends sparks to the soul.

“One of the year’s most galvanizing cinematic experiences” (Rex Reed, New York Observer)

“There are other movies out this year that are more technically ambitious than Wild. There are others that are wider-reaching in scope and sheer audacity. But there aren’t any others that offer the power and profundity of Wild. This movie is a gift. It’s also a journey.” (Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune)
