Watch: Reese Witherspoon in First Trailer for Jean-Marc Vallée's 'Wild'
Happy Trails. Fox Searchlight has debuted a lovely trailer for Jean-Marc Vallée's Wild, a drama adapted from Cheryl Strayed's book of the same name, starring Reese Witherspoon as a woman who takes a 1,100-mile solo hike as a way to recover from a loss and rekindle her own life. I had a feeling this might be kind of like Reese Witherspoon's 127 Hours, an adventure about one woman who endures the challenges of mother nature, and learns lots of life lessons along the way. This has somewhat of that feel, but goes to a few different places, thanks to tender filmmaking from Jean-Marc Vallée, who last made Dallas Buyers Club.
Wild is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club, The Young Victoria), written by Nick Hornby (An Education, About a Boy, High Fidelity) and based on Cheryl Strayed's best-selling book of the same name. With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. Laura Dern also stars in the film which Fox Searchlight releases on December 5th.

"You Can Go Your Own Way" needs to be playing somewhere in this trailer.

I'm definitely excited now for this one. By the looks of this trailer, it seems that this role really suits her. The cinematography looks amazing also.
