First Look: Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl Strayed in Wild
Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Thomas Sadoski and Michiel Huisman star in Wild, an adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s New York Times #1 best-seller that re-launched Oprah’s Book Club 2.0.. See the movie photo, cast and plot summary below. Wild tells the story of Cheryl Strayed’s 1,100 mile trek through the largely untouched wilderness of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone.
With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
