By Matt Neglia 

The 2014 retrospective rolls on. This week we’re taking a look back at Jean-Marc Vallée’s followup to his Oscar winning “Dallas Buyers Club” titled “Wild.” Based on the memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Stayed, this deeply personal true story stars Reese Witherspoon & Laura Dern in Oscar nominated performances. Joining me for this review I have Nicole AckmanDan Bayer and two Patreon guests: Connor Olen & Cheyne Nomura. Also be sure to check out our other 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”
