Reese Witherspoon plays recovering heroin addict in touching wild trailer

Travel Deals


The first look at Reese Witherspoon’s much anticipated new film Wild, based on the Cheryl Stayed’s best selling memoir by the same name, has arrived. The 38-year-old Oscar winner “went method with the hair and no makeup” according to director Jean-Marc Vallee [Dallas Buyers Club], to play a recovering heroin addict, who, after the death of her mother, decides to walk to 1,100 mile Pacific Crest Trail on her own.

Stayed originally sent the book to Witherspoon with a note that read, “I can’t imagine who else would do this.” The cast also includes Enlightened’s Laura Dern, as Stayed’s mother, Michiel Huisman [Game of ThronesNashville], Gabby Hoffmann [Uncle Buck, Girls], and Thomas Sadoski [The Newsroom].

The trailer also features Beck‘s 2014 moving song “Turn Away,” from his 12th studio album, Morning Phase.

Wild is out in theaters on December 5.
