Director: Jean-Marc Vallee
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern
The lead character in this movie is appropriately named Cheryl Strayed. She's presented as having led a "wild" existence when her marriage failed and her mother died. So, without any experience in hiking with loaded backpack, she dares the thousand-mile Pacific Crest Trail, facing in the process, the perils and pleasures of a one woman's adventure that's supposedly to cleanse and heal her troubled being.
Reese Witherspoon's gutsy performance spectacularly captures the internal landscape in Cheryl Strayed that contrasts the picturesque landscape of the Pacific Crest Trail.
