“Here’s something about the movies – they need to involve you, either by manipulation or by making you a pure spectator of something so thrilling you can’t let go.
Wild looked like one of the latter. And I was fairly happy about it.
Premiering across the country in the 11th Dubai International Film Festival, and helmed through it all by Dallas Buyers Club fame Jean-Marc Vallée, this definitely looked like a movie to reckon with. Additionally, Reese Witherspoon seems to be having a good year, what with The Good Lie also receiving a fairly wide positive nod.
And as I sat in for the premiere screening in the almost glitzy theatre, looking through the moving spotlights above me like I might have been high, I wondered but one teensy thing that I always do when I seem to have, at the very least, moderately high expectations of a film – would the movie betray me like some movies sometimes do?”
