The movie 'Wild' is a biography/drama based on the memoir 'Wild : From the Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail' by Cheryl Strayed.

Reese Witherspoon plays Cheryl and Laura Dern plays Cheryl's mother.

In 1995, Cheryl Strayed sets out alone to walk over a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, with little experience or preparation.  This decision follows a series of devastating events in her life...including her mother's death, her own divorce, drug abuse, & a subsequent downward spiral in her life.

Cheryl stumbles and falls (literally and spiritually) several times throughout her journey, as she flashes back and relives painful memories.  But the memories make her more determined to continue her journey and fight to see it through to the end.  She meets a few others along the way, but in the end she relies on herself and her sheer determination to clear her mind and forgive herself for past mistakes.

'Wild' is an impressive and emotional movie.  Witherspoon does a nice job playing Cheryl Strayed, a strong-willed woman who you will find yourself rooting for straight through to the finish.

I was inspired by her soul-searching journey and I think you will be too.  :)
