Auf den richtigen Pfad

Wir erleben Cheryl Strayed am tiefsten Punkt ihrer dreimonatigen 1100 Kilometer langen Wanderung entlang des Pacific Crest Pfades, ganz allein. Ihre Füsse sind blutig, einen zersplitterten Nagel muss sie abtrennen. Cheryl schreit qualvoll, wie im Todeskampf. Einer ihrer Wanderstiefel fällt die Klippe hinunter, sie wirft den anderen hinterher. Wir sollten uns betroffen fühlen, angesichts der jungen Frau allein in der Wildnis, ohne Schuhe. Als ich den Film sah, wusste ich aber: Sie wird es schaffen. Warum? Weil es Reese Witherspoon ist, die wohl patenteste und problemlösendste Schauspielerin Hollywoods. Ihre nicht zu unterschätzende Klugheit, sie hat so viele Filme getragen! Eine Überlebenskünstlerin ist Witherspoon nicht nur auf der Leinwand. Ihre Karriere erlitt einen Knick ausgerechnet i...

Never thought a movie about hiking would captivate

"God is a ruthless bitch."

A film about someone who decides to go down the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) just to come to terms with herself after living a turbulent life. At first sight it seemed to me that this subject was a bit too feeble for creating an entertaining movie. To some extent that's true, but at the same time, this was nonetheless a touching and sometimes quite moving film. This notorious 4286 kilometer long footpath, situated in the West of the USA and running along the highest parts of the Sierra Nevada, definitely isn't for beginners. And yet Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) packed her backpack and without any preparation she started this eerie trip.

Firstly you can foresee that this could be a fairly monotonous film. One individual all alone in the wild na...

The girl who walked 1,100 miles for hope

Cheryl Strayed: "I have only another 300 miles left to walk. I'm desperate for it to be over. I'm terrified too. When I'm done, I'll only have two dimes to my name, but I'll have to start living. I'm nowhere near ready."

The story is about Cheryl Strayed has she 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.

Well since it's award season and a lot of award worthy movies are coming (Really fast, I mean my lord there's loads) and t...

A Journey Worth Taking

'Wild' is an intimate portrait of one woman's thousand mile journey. Not only do we watch our first-time hiker struggle with the elements, but we also see the hardships she endured in life before through flashbacks. It all culminates in a terrible plateau brought on by wrong choices after personal loss. A great emotional connection is reached when witnessing her low times. I was more than ready to accept her willingness and determination, from learning her past. It gave me strong investment in the journey. The excellent direction creates a shared experience of hiking along side her. The whole film is emotionally fulfilling because of this and more so for WItherspoon's immersive performance. It might just make you feel more confident about overcoming the struggles in your life.
