Reese Witherspoon’s latest feature WILD has created some serious buzz including two Oscar Nominations for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. Perthians have the opportunity to enjoy the movie outside at the Luna Outdoor in Leederville (from Thursday January 22- Wednesday January 28). Think of the immersiveness of the experience. Ms Witherspoon is under the stars and so are you!
In this captivating adaptation of the best-selling 2012 memoir, Reese Witherspoon plays a young Cheryl Strayed attempting the gruelling 1,100-mile hike across the Pacific Crest Trail. It’s the early 1990s and Cheryl, reeling from a difficult break-up, decides to embark on a route that will see her pass through desert, snow, and over the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges, all on foot.
Fresh from the success of Dallas Buyers Club, director Jean-Marc Vallée offers an epic appreciation of the country through which the ill-prepared Cheryl travels: rarely in recent times have American landscapes been filmed with such sweeping majesty. But this is also a very intimate tale, the film is interspersed with moving flashbacks to Cheryl’s past, as she come to terms with the loss of her mother (a vivacious and warm Laura Dern) and her history of drug addiction.
WILD THURSDAY NIGHT 22nd JAN: Join the Luna crew for a WILD celebration featuring David Craft providing acoustic ‘campfire’ entertainment by Cool Perth Nights, Siena’s pizza plus patrons attending the opening night screening have a chance to win copies of the Cheryl Strayed inspirational book and CD soundtracks.
