Wild (2014)

Wild (2014)

A young woman embarks on a journey to find herself. 60 days roll by, full of flashbacks, trials and tribulations, and Reese Witherspoon wandering around. Wondering, pondering the truths of life, occasionally stumbling upon interesting (or dangerous) people and new realizations of the world.

True story? It's based upon an auto-biography, apparently, and reminds me a bit of Into The Wild. It's not just that it's based upon a book, but there's a call to the wild theme they both have in common, a venturing away from civilization for some bigger purpose... though in this case Reese Witherspoon is a very reluctant and unprepared venturer.

It was a good movie though, consistently interesting despite the limited cast (though there is much more than Into The Wild). It ended with Simon & Garfunkel's El Condor Pasa - If I Could, an inspiring and incredibly suitable song at that point... beautiful sceneries, song, sex, drugs, abuse, a fox leading her along the trail, rain, snow, sun, and then at last she's at the bridge of times past. But I haven't really told you the whole story, I think. ;) Inspiring, depressing and unexpectedly refreshing watch.

    Just saw this a few days ago- my thought was Reese Witherspoon was nothing more than a gimmick actress, but after watching this I have a new found respect for her.

    nude scenes were hot af
    what happened to the fox
    needed a little more segue on her transition between the drug life and electing to start her adventure
    i give it a 4/5 too

    I didn't really know who she was before this movie. I knew her name, and I'd seen at least a few movies with her in it, but didn't link the name to the person at all, this was definitely one that put those two together. Really takes a good actress to keep an audience captivated with so little interference from others too.


    she let it go? It seemed to me like a symbol, a guide, the ghost of her mother, a reminder, a friend, a threat, a side of her she was afraid to meet or had to phase. Something like that?
    hmm, now that you mention it!
