IMDB: Wild – 2014
IMDB Rating: 7.1/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 90%
A story revolving around purely 1 character, with little snippets of others thrown in throughout this 1,000 mile journey up the Pacific Crest Trail. Apparently Reese Witherspoon (and you see her with one early in the movie) was handpicked by the person she is portraying specifically for this role.
It’s an odd movie at times (the newspaper on the dining room chairs are a great example), that leaves you thinking about things after they happen. The flash backs don’t always seem to be well timed though with some of them seeming out of place.
The conversations seem honest and realistic which is a nice change in a biographical movie, with seemingly natural humour and the like flowing nicely. Overall, well worth the 2 hours it takes to watch.
