Based on the bestselling memoir by Cheryl Strayed, this film adaptation stars Reese Witherspoon as a wayward twenty-something who, with no experience, sets off to hike a 1,100 mile stretch of the Pacific Coast Trail after her mother passes away. As the remaining gang takes refuge in Mexican territory, Thornton trails them, resulting in fierce gunfights with plenty of casualties. Can the animals find Ryan and get out of Africa before the volcano erupts in so little time?. Ryan is a lion who wants to go to the wild, where his dad Samson once lived. Prior to the film's wide release, Wild has already been nominated for the audience choice award at the Chicago International Film Festival, with Vallée receiving a best director nod at the Hollywood Film Awards. They have to fight an evil wildebeest called Kazar. When he gets himself shipped to Africa, his zoo friends and Samson work together to bring him back.
But Kazar's safe compared to the other danger on the island- a volcano that's on the edge of eruption. When they get to Africa, however, the animals find themselves in a pile of danger. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, the film was adapted for the screen by Nick Hornby and also features Laura Dern as Strayed's mother. Aging outlaw Pike Bishop William Holden prepares to retire after one final robbery. Joined by his gang, which includes Dutch Engstrom Ernest Borgnine and brothers Lyle Warren Oates and Tector Gorch Ben Johnson , Bishop discovers the heist is a setup orchestrated in part by his old partner, Deke Thornton Robert Ryan. Set to be released in the United States for the holiday season, this dramatic tale is a must for anyone interested in stories about strong women that illuminate the human condition.
A strong performance by Oscar-winner Witherspoon is getting early Oscar buzz as well. . . . . . .
