In 1995, American single woman 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 behaviour.

Her true story is brought to the screen this week by Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon, who has called her role in 'Wild' the hardest thing she's ever done.
