    Wow. Wild is doing TIFF and Telluride?

    Ehh…in terms of Oscary films most of those films already have a working buzz. I’m more interested in whether or not The Imitation Game will be a major player.

    Apparently they’ve added an earlier screening of WILD, so reactions should be coming in the next three hours.

    A very positive “WILD” review, by The Hollywood Reporter:

    Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and director Jean-Marc Vallee bring Cheryl Strayed’s best-selling memoir to life on screen


    Now in Wild, based on a best-selling memoir by Cheryl Strayed, Vallee has crafted a vivid wilderness adventure film that is also a powerful story of family anguish and survival.
    All of these films focus on very strong-willed individuals, but the
    completely different worlds they bring to life testify to an astute
    directorial hand.


    The popularity of Strayed’s book and the strong performance by Reese Witherspoon should
    ensure an audience for the movie and bring more accolades to the
    director, as well as to screenwriter Nick Hornby (About a Boy, An
    Education), who adapts the book with finesse


    Dallas Buyers Club earned Oscars for both its lead and supporting actors, and it’s conceivable that the new film could repeat the trick for two actresses.

    Witherspoon transforms herself both physically and emotionally
    into this hardened yet needy young woman seeking to re-invent herself
    after a series of personal tragedies
    . She chose this marathon hike
    almost on a whim, and she was completely unprepared for the challenges.
    As Strayed wrote in her book, “I hadn’t factored in my lack of fitness,
    nor the genuine rigors of the trail, until I was on it.” Witherspoon captures all the conflicting, dizzying emotions that the adventure stirs in her.


    Witherspoon is matched by Laura Dern, who plays her mother, Bobbi, an inspiring life force who is stricken with a devastating medical diagnosis


    Inevitably a film like this is going to be episodic, but the
    adventures that Cheryl has on the trail are always startling, from her
    encounters with wildlife to the nightmare of a freak snowstorm. Yet the
    human encounters also enrich her journey, and here Hornby’s ability to
    bring minor characters to life and Vallee’s fine work with an
    extraordinary supporting cast make all of these episodes richly
    compelling. The director is helped by the exceptional cinematography of
    Yves Belanger
    , who takes us through varied landscapes from the
    scorching Mojave desert to the imposing mountains of northern California
    and Oregon.


    The film remains equally compelling during the flashbacks.


    Witherspoon doesn’t shy away from showing the dark sides of Cheryl’s
    character — her surrender to sexual excesses and drug addiction. Her
    battle for survival began a long time before she hit the wilderness
    trail, so her journey illuminates a whole series of internal as well as
    external struggles
    . Witherspoon’s inherent appeal keeps us on
    Cheryl’s side even through her self-destructive exploits, but there’s
    nothing sentimental about the actress’s tart portrayal.

    THE REESENAISSANCE BEGINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wait. Laura Dern plays Reese Witherspoon’s mother? Laura’s character gave birth at what 9?. 😉

    Wild is very good. Strong direction from Vallee. Witherspoon gives it all. #Tellruide

    Women on both sides of me crying at end. I did not have same reaction but found movie impressive. #WILDmovie #Tellruide

    gregoryellwood ‏@HitFixGregory 1m
    Laura Dern is very good. Could break into supporting if weak year. Reeds obv best actress nom lock. #WILDmovie #Tellruide

    @TomiLaffly: #WILD: a compelling RWitherspoon walks through the
    wilderness in a woman’s shoes. Literally & metaphorically. Liked.
    Didn’t love. #Telluride

    @firstshowing: Wild – Endearing adaption of Cheryl Strayed’s book about
    conquering her demons on a 1000 mile hike. Better than expected – Reese
    is great.

    @TomiLaffly: Think what bothered me was the lackluster structure. Her
    impressive story of resilience was too often interrupted. #Wild
    #Telluride

    @AwardsDaily: Wild’s best bet a lead nod for Reese. Best parts were with Laura Dern. Still thinking on it.

    @DeadlinePete: Wild just premiered at Telluride. Terrific film and
    perfect place to see this true story. Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl
    Strayed – SUPERBM

    @EricDSnider: WILD: Reese gives an all-in performance as a messed-up
    woman on a cleansing 1,000-mile hike. Solid, if a little on the nose.

    I don’t know. Was kind of expecting more froth at the mouth for Wild.
