Stupid movie, with stupid actors, and movie completely unbelievable.
First she's a lying, cheating, drug addict whore. Then she decides she wants to go out in nature to find herself. She was still friends with her ex husband even though she slept with a lot of other men. What kind of worthless loser would still be friends with his ex after she screwed every man she talked to but him.
Not worth watching...

Expected more and found it wanting. Curious about the book.

Wild stars Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl Strayed, a woman that decides to walk a 1,100-mile hike alone on the Pacific Crest Trail on her journey to self discovery and healing after tragedy. Compared to the autobiographical book it portrays the events well and Reese Witherspoon was a great casting choice as well as Laura Dern who played Cheryl's mother. This movie can definitely be enjoyed by both readers of the book and lovers of good films.

Interesting, but not quite believable story. Lots of hardships and just a little loving.

My partner and I have been inspired to walk the PCT too after watching this movie (scenes of the movie is actually filmed on the beautiful PCT itself). We're now in full preparation :)

She had the balls to face her fears, and even more challenging, herself.

I liked the book, although I got tired of the constant drugs and sex in unsafe circumstances, and felt the author positively wallowed in grief about her mother. So my expectations about the movie were low. That can be a good thing; in this case, it was. Expecting little, I thought it did a good job with the material. I'm glad I watched it.

Great scenery .... lots of melodrama and poor inadequate little girl being rescued by experienced male hikers. Couldn't wait for this movie to end.

I didn't have a high expectation on this movie because Reese supposed to be this Legally Blonde person who's just comical. She's a good actress because I expected her to play her Rom Com usual self and she didn't do that.
Its a story about finding yourself and forgiveness. The hiking scene is just great. Living in CA and didn't hike this trail is such a waste. This is one of my favorite Reese movie, very unexpected.

I'd rather be a hammer than a nail...

I know only that I didn't need to reach with my bare hands anymore. That seeing the fish beneath the surface was enough. That it was everything. My life -like all lives- mysterious, irrevocable and sacred, so very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. How wild it was, to let it be.

I've always been someone's daughter or mother or wife. I never got to be in the driver's seat of my own life.

“Cheryl: My mother used to say something that drove me nuts. There is a sunrise and a sunset every day and you can choose to be there for it. You can put yourself in the way of beauty.”

Jimmy: I've only spoken to maybe one other female hobo in two years.
Cheryl: Let me reiterate to you, I am not a hobo ... They've got kids to take care of, they've got parents to look after.
Jimmy: You sound like a feminist.

From the opening scenes: My father left my life when I was six. My mother died when I was twenty-two. In the wake of her death, my stepfather morphed from the person I considered my dad into a man I only occasionally recognized. My two siblings scattered in their grief, in spite of my efforts to hold us together, until I gave up and scattered as well. ...
