If You Have Seen the Movie, Read the Book & If You Have Read the Book, See the Movie | Post Script to my Review of “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed

Wild

I have just come back from seeing the movie “Wild” starring Reese Witherspoon. Never have I seen a movie compliment a book so well. Noted author Nick Hornby has taken the themes that Cheryl Strayed used in her book and has written a script that director Jean-Marc Vallée could use to bring those touching elements to the screen. There is a lot of mindless dreck out there right now being passed off as good ‘value’ but both this movie and this book are a cultural phenomenon that deserve praise.
