Wild

Wild is the story of Cheryl Strayed, a former heroin addict who exorcised her inner demons by trekking for three months on the 1100-mile long Pacific Crest Trail.  Basically she walked through California to Canada.  Cheryl’s journey – both literal and metaphorical – seemed a tad clichéd.  A bit too Eat Pray Love if you know what I mean.

But director Jean-Marc Vallee, writer Nick Hornby and leading lady Reese Witherspoon twist that cliché inside out.  Wildis visually stunning and desperately sad.  I can’t say that I totally understood Cheryl’s motivations but I empathized with her.  I cried with her.  Scene by scene, her arduous struggle – physical and emotional – became an inspiration.
