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.

This movie is high on my “must see” see. The trailer looks amazing. I just ordered the book and am planning to read it before seeing the movie. I’ve heard such great things.
How about you? Have you read the book? Will you be seeing Wild on the big screen?
