This films features stunning locations in the rugged mountains of California, Orgeon and Washington. 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.
Beer and wine will be available for purchase Friday and Saturday night.
Q&A on Sunday night with local Shay Blackley who's completed the Triple Crown of hiking - the Pacific Crest, Appalachian and Continental Dive trails for a total of 7,900 miles hiked!
What makes its heroine worth caring about - what makes her a rare and exciting presence in present-day American film - is not that she's tidy or sensible or even especially nice. It's that she's free. - The New York Times
