 “What if I forgave myself even though I’d done something I shouldn’t have?”

Review by Eddie on 29/06/2015

It’s a movie that screams “Oscar” for its female lead and a film based around a redemptive true story but for all the good Wild does (which is largely in its use of its natural scenery) it never threatens to become something truly special that its very much like minded and similarly titled Into the Wild did back in 2007.

Directed by Dallas Buyers Club’s
