SUN­DAY WILD

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

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.
