Wild by Jean-Marc Vallée starring Reese Witherspoon and Giovanni Ribisi

Beyond being based on an amazing book, the film’s director is Canadian powerhouse Jean-Marc Vallé (Dallas Buyer’s Club, C.R.A.Z.Y) and the trailer uses Beck’s wonderful tune “Turn Away.” And the final wrinkle? The film was written by Nick Hornby!!!!!
