A formulaic story about a father and son failing to bond because of the pressure to be macho. We can see how this will pan out the moment we meet Ryan the lion cub, who plans to escape New York Zoo and learn to roar like his dad.

Reese Witherspoon stars in a powerful and moving true-life wilderness adventure scripted by Nick Hornby. Following a personal tragedy, Cheryl Strayed slips into a cycle of self-destructive behaviour. Her ex-husband Paul and best friend Aimee are powerless to help her. But then Cheryl makes the decision to embark upon an extraordinary, life-changing journey. She takes an eventful solo hike along the epic 1,100 mile Pacific West Trail, which runs all the way up the western spine of the United States. Nick Hornby follows his Oscar-nominated screenplay for 'An Education' with this adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's bestselling memoir. Reese Witherspoon is a revelation as Cheryl, in her meatiest role since 'Walk the Line'. She's ably supported by Laura Dern, who gives a heartbreaking performance as Cheryl's mother, Bobbi. The director is versatile Jean-Marc Vallee, whose previous film, the much-acclaimed 'Dallas Buyers Club', won three Oscars.
