Wild + Dinner
Witherspoon shines in the true-life tale of a woman's journey through the wilderness
Fancy a different cinema experience? Then why not get down to Roxy's Bar And Screen and catch great new films, served up with a side of modern European food. With an emphasis on healthy ingredients from the nearby food market – think homemade burgers and perfectly cooked steaks – it's a step up from your everyday Multiplex outing. After losing her mother to cancer, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) falls into a deep depression, leading to divorce her husband and – with no hiking experience – walk 1,100 miles of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail solo. A tale of the dangers of the wild, the pain of loss and the power of redemption, Wild garnered numerous Academy Award nominations and is a truly beautiful film.
