Synopsis [A] compelling tale of rebirth....WILD's ratio of dramatic incident to 'just existing in nature' is nicely judged.3 stars out of 4 -- It's a showstopping performance from an actress who keeps springing surprises.This isn't a journey of redemption -- it's one of salvation....A gut-punching drama. -- Grade: A–WILD may be full of natural beauty -- Yves Bélanger’s cinematography unostentatiously captures the infinite colors and vistas of the West -- but it is also a celebration of the power of art.Witherspoon does a beautiful job of subtly showing the growth in this woman.3.5 stars out of 4 -- With Reese Witherspoon at the helm, WILD is a fierce path well-worth following...Driven by a committed turn from Witherspoon, Jean-Marc Vallée confirms himself as the go-to director for triumph-over-adversity character studies.4 stars out of 5 -- [A] quietly moving coming of age story that resists formula or easy redemption, driven by a strong, unvarnished performance from Witherspoon...[Witherspoon delivers a] naturalistic, generous performance....A quietly rewarding journey towards personal resolution.Adapted from Cheryl Strayed's best-selling memoir of the same name, director Jean-Marc Vallée's WILD stars Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon as a self-destructive divorcée who seeks to conquer her demons by hiking 1100 miles across the Pacific Crest Trail. Cheryl was just 22 years old when her mother Bobbi (Laura Dern) died of cancer in 1991. As children, Cheryl and her brother watched their mother endure intense suffering at the hands of their mentally and physically abusive father, and Bobbi was just getting her life together when she fell gravely ill. The loss was too much for Cheryl to take, and before long she sank so deeply into heroin addiction that it destroyed her marriage. Four years later, Cheryl has hit rock bottom. She knows that unless she makes a change, the future she had once hoped for will slip permanently out of reach. Later, as Cheryl begins her arduous journey through the wilderness, those painful memories come flooding back as she encounters numerous dangers and disheartening setbacks. However, the kindness of strangers helps her summon the courage and endurance she'll need to stay the path.
