12.05PM, MASTERPIECE (FOXTEL) ★★★★
A slow-burning true story of self-discovery and finding redemption in places most people wouldn’t dare look. Reese Witherspoon stars as Cheryl Strayed, a young woman reeling from two major life mistakes in a row. To put a failed marriage and a recurring struggle with heroin behind her, she embarks on an arduous 1700km hike along the US Pacific Crest Trail. Scripted by award-winning author Nick Hornby from Strayed’s own best-selling book, Wild slowly but surely enters the frazzled mind of its subject in vividly moving detail.
