  • Under the keen-eyed direction of Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club), Wild emerges as an exciting, elemental adventure that takes you places you don't see coming. show more

  • Wild has so many things in its favor that it’s tempting to leave out the fact that it’s a movie about a hike that sometimes feels like being on a hike, a long one, without many changes of scenery. But the movie’s achievement is that it overcomes this. show more

  • Translating solitary musings, raw despondency and personal enlightenment into arresting visuals is a substantial feat and novelist/screenwriter Nick Hornby was the perfect choice to convert the fascinating book into a lively script. show more

    Even though this was a movie about a long hike, I felt like you really got a good look into why she chose to subject herself to this. I truly enjoyed her journey both literally and figuratively. Reese Witherspoon gave a really convincing performance in this role. One reviewer felt like the book was so much better and isn't that usually the case.

    I am not a big Reese Witherspoon fan in general, but her performance in this movie is exceptional. She gives a roller coaster of feelings and emotions that makes her character as Cheryl Strayed very relatable. I even shed a tear. (first time this year over a movie). She made me a fan. The audience was able to understand and feel her every struglle literally step by step..BRAVA!

    Hated it. Boring and Witherspoon is totally miscast IMHO.
