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.
