WILD Interview – Jean-Marc Vallée
Over the course of the last 20 years, Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée has helmed over a dozen acclaimed films – both features and shorts. Last year, he directed two actors (Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto) to Academy Award-winning performances in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB. His newest film is WILD which is based on the powerful true story of Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) and her life-changing solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. The film showcases a physical and emotional journey as Strayed seeks personal redemption and healing. Even before the movie’s release, Witherspoon’s fearless performance is already earning praise from critics.
