WILD powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.

"Wild" stars Gaby Hoffman, Kevin Rankin, Michiel Huisman, Reese Witherspoon, Thomas Sadoski, and W. Earl Brown.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallee.
Written by Nick Hornby.
Produced by Bill Pohlad, Bruna Papandrea, and Reese Witherspoon.
