A journey from lost to found
Cheryl Strayed's (Reese Witherspoon) life has crumbled around her. The grief from her mother's death from years before has poisoned every aspect of her life, driving her to heroin and compulsive sex, which costs her her marriage. Needing time to reflect and heal, she makes the rash decision to walk the 11,000 mile Pacific Coast Trail.
Based on the bestselling memoirs of Cheryl Strayed, this journey is a distinctly personal one, yet the truths we can all recognise come from the relationship with her mother (Laura Dern), which is powerful yet understated. Cheryl's character is undoubtedly the most challenging of Reese Witherspoon's career.
You'll never regret making the journey with her.
