2013/14 was Matthew McConaughey’s year, so will 2015 be the year Resse Witherspoon establishes herself as one of Hollywood’s leading ladies? With the help of Dallas Buyers Club director Jean Marc Vallee Witherspoon will star in Wild and tonight we get a look at a new poster, clip and another look at the film’s trailer courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox.
In Wild After years of reckless behaviour, a heroin addiction and the destruction of her marriage, Strayed (Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon) makes a rash decision. Haunted by memories of her mother Bobbi (Academy Award® nominee Laura Dern) and with absolutely no experience, she sets out to hike more than a thousand miles on the Pacific Crest Trail all on her own. WILD powerfully reveals her terrors and pleasures as she forges ahead on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
You could say Wild has similar qualities to Sean Penn‘s brilliantly underrated Into The Wild which is not a bad thing and with the director of Dallas Buyers Club behind the lens (Witherspoon producing) success for the film is a possibility. Like all filmmakers Wild will be judged against DBC as a point on what critics and film fans will expect with Wild, he captures the intimacy as well as the natural, dangerous beauty of the great wilderness with a flawed character attempting to find themselves.It made our Top 10 films list to watch this Autumn/Winter so we have big hopes this will do well when it arrives in a cinema near you!
Wild will arrive in UK & Ireland from 16th January 2015 with Thomas Sadoski, Michiel Huisman, Gaby Hoffmann and Kevin Rankin.
