From the director of Dallas Buyers Club, and based on the beloved best-selling book, this inspiring story follows Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon, in a Golden Globe nominated performance), a woman who makes the decision to put her life back together by setting out alone to conquer one of the country's longest and toughest treks - the Pacific Crest Trail.
