The Beauty of Retrospect, September Actress Edition: Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon has remained active in the movies since I last featured her on this blog in December 2011.

In fact, she made one of the most rewarding and demanding movies of her career in 2014.  Wild, based on writer Cheryl Strayed's 2012 memoir "Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail," featured Ms. Witherspoon as Cheryl Strayed, documenting the author's hike up the Pacific Crest Trail  from southern California to the Columbia River an effort to find herself and achieve inner peace in the aftermath of her mother's death and her own divorce, as well as to get away from her personal self-destructive behavior.

The film was a success with critics, and it is easily one of Reese Witherspoon's best movies.  This movie is not to be confused with the 2007 survivalist film Into the Wild.

That's it for my retrospectives of famous actresses.  Coming in October - more new subjects. :-)
