Reese Witherspoon… playing a heroin addict? This I have got to see for my own eyes.
In Wild, Witherspoon plays Cheryl Strayed, a recovering heroin addict living in Oregon. The highly emotional film is based on Strayed’s best-selling 2012 memoir “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail.”
Her character ventures out into the wilderness on a 1,100 mile hike of self discovery and peace through the mountains on the Pacific Crest Trail four years after her mother’s death with no prior training or experience. Past mistakes and loved ones race through her mind as she goes on both a taxing journey both mentally and physically.
The trailer is already creating very early Oscar buzz around Reese, who won the Best Actress Oscar for “Walk The Line” back in 2005. Could Reese be on her way back to Oscar glory? Let us know in the comments below!
