Book Trailer of the Week: Wild (the movie)
Here is one more movie that I would love to catch during the Christmas holiday. This one is based on a 2012 memoir written by Cheryl Strayed ("Strayed," from what I recall, is the surname she created for herself and is not her original name). I have long enjoyed reading books about long hikes, bicycle trips, or road trips, and that's the main reason I picked up Wild in the first place. But Wild is about much more than the hiking; it is about a woman looking to reset her life by first understanding her past. And it is remarkable, so good, that I hope the movie even comes close to capturing the spirit of the book.
