Review: Wild (2014)
Poetry marks the way !"If your Nerve, deny you - Go above your Nerve" is the first of many literary quotes Cheryl Strayed used during her journey. It best suits her free-spirited willpower to overcome the hardships in her life and the physical task of this long hike, for which she is totally unprepared and completely clumsy at first. She does however become more seasoned and reaches personal conclusions at the end.
I liked Reese Witherspoon in" Water for Elephants" and "Mud", but she excells here.
Haunting strains of "El Condor Pasa" form a perfect part of the soundtrack.
