(2014) (Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Following her mother's death and the end of her marriage, a woman hikes a 1,000 mile trail in hopes of finding herself.
- Following the death of her mother, Bobbi (LAURA DERN), Cheryl Strayed (REESE WITHERSPOON) fell into a downward spiral of drug use and anonymous sex, much to the dismay of her best friend, Aimee (GABY HOFFMAN), and especially her husband, Paul (THOMAS SADOSKI). After their divorce, Cheryl needs to find herself and thus sets out to hike the one-thousand plus miles of the Pacific Coast Trail by herself.
As she does so and occasionally encounters other fellow hikers such as Greg (KEVIN RANKIN), she ponders her past, including her relationship with Paul, her mother, and her brother, Leif (KEENE McRAE), as well as her descent into heroin use and promiscuity.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Unless they're fans of anyone in the cast or are really into hiking, it's not that likely.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For sexual content, nudity, drug use, and language.
