Movie Wild Introspect


A couple weeks ago, the movie Wild was released which is about a woman who finds her life getting out of control. She was once young, bright, and talented but now finds herself caught up in a bad drug addition, failing marriage, and helpless. She decides to clean up her act and embark on hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in order to find some sort of peace. The movie is based on a true story and delves into the life on a mentally-lost woman as she finds her way physically and emotionally. Sergio Andrade Guitierrez tweeted about how awesome it was.

The movie shows us the nature of power. As cliché as it sounds, we are so caught up in today’s technology and world that we fail to look at the world around us. The goals and simplicity of her trip made it possible to find a greater version of herself which she feels she is so disconnected to. The trip gave her the opportunity to utilize her strengths and realize her weak points so that she could grow as a person. The movie has so far done extremely successful and has a 91% rating on the movie review site Rotten Tomato. The movie gives light to a part of a drug addiction and transformation as a person that we usually do not see.
