From “Dallas Buyers Club” director Jean-Marc Vallée comes “Wild”, a biographical drama film based on Cheryl Strayed’s 2012 memoir “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail”.
The director teamed up with Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Nicky Hornby to bring the extraordinary adventure of the bestselling author to the silver screen.
Written by Hornby, “Wild” is produced by Witherspoon, Bruna Papandrea, and Bill Pohlad. Witherspoon also stars in the movie alongside Laura Dern, Thomas Sadoski, Michiel Huisman, and Gaby Hoffmann.
The “Legally Blonde” actress plays Strayed, a woman who makes a rash decision after years of reckless behaviour, a heroin addiction, and the destruction of her marriage. Haunted by memories of her mother Bobbi (played by Academy Award nominee Laura Dern), she decides to hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail with absolutely no experience. As she forges ahead on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her, the film powerfully reveals her terrors and pleasures.
“Wild” premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on 29th August 2014 and was released theatrically on 3rd December 2014 in North America. Both Witherspoon and Dern received positive critical reviews for their performances in the movie and were nominated for the Academy Award in the categories of “Best Actress” and “Best Supporting Actress”.
Slated for release on 12th March 2015, “Wild” will be exclusively released at selected GSC outlets including GSC Mid Valley, GSC Pavilion KL, GSC 1 Utama and GSC Gurney Plaza.
