A Quick Review: Wild


So on Saturday Night I went to the dinner & the cinema, kind of a casual double date, (we went to Grill'd) and saw the film Wild. This wasn't a movie that I had heard much about, apart from reading a brief interview with main star Reese Witherspoon. And to be honest, it didn't really interest me that much, in terms of the types and genres of movies that I usually tend to see. I'm not one for dramas. Even though I am an avid moviegoer.

Wild is a film based on the nonfiction book about a woman, Cheryl Strayed [Witherspoon], who realises with great anguish that her life has no value. So she takes a 90 day hike through the Pacific Crest Trail on a journey of self discovery. A film riddled with flashbacks, we discover throughout the film what drove Cheryl to take this hike alone in the first place.



I was pleasantly surprised that a film that is one person walking through the woods, still contains a lot of depth and story. While not my general cup of the tea the movie is well filmed, with Witherspoon doing a brilliant job of portraying the protagonist.

Real life Cheryl Strayed was incredibly pleased with how the book was brought to the silver screen, saying that "Every time I see it I get chills." Well Witherspoon must have done a good job, as she's already been nominated for an Academy Award for her role.

  7. I really want to see it! Reese Whiterspoon is a pretty good actress, so it should be a good one.
