Synopsis: A woman takes a 1,100 mile hike down the PCT in order to deal with a personal issue. 

 

 

Wild isn’t as wild as the title suggests. It’s rather more mundane. Based on a memoir by Cheryl Strayed, who experienced the events depicted in the movie. I could see how this was worth being made into a book, tho…
