Not since June Carter Cash in Walk the Line has Witherspoon been so present to a character. Her Cheryl is funny and messy, wounded but not without survival instincts.

As a new chapter in Reese Witherspoon's career, Wild is a positive step towards the future.

What I like most about Wild is its nuance, its sense of uncertainty and its willingness to leave unanswerable questions unanswered.

What do you do when your heroine is tough but emotionally hurt, bright but glib, grown but immature? Make a film about her that is both painful and uplifting.
