|In 1995, Cheryl Strayed decides to hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail alone as a way to heal herself following her divorce, the death of her mother, and years of reckless, destructive behavior.
The film presents a multi-linear narrative, presenting events from Cheryl's hike in chronological order, with frequent flashbacks to earlier points in her life, featuring her (as a child, teenager, and young adult), her mother and brother, her former husband, and other people she has known.
Both Witherspoon and Dern were up for academy awards. This was a great movie and the photography was outstanding.
The real Cheryl Strayed had a small part in the beginning of the movie and the real life daughter of Cheryl Strayed played a young Cheryl Strayed.
note - In flashbacks during the movie there are several sex scenes and some nudity.
